A huge thank you to the Army Benevolent Fund

It was our pleasure to meet Emma from the Army Benevolent Fund (ABF) at Fisher House. The ABF has been a longstanding supporter of Fisher House, our home from home for military patients and their families.

As a part of our partnership they kindly sponsor The Wellington Room, where Emma is pictured. Thanks to their support we have been able to help over 7,000 military families when they need us the most.

During her visit Emma was also able to meet with Ben from The Defence Medical Welfare Service who provide emotional and practical support to families when they come to Fisher House to ensure we can take away as much stress and anxiety as possible, at what can be a very traumatic time.

Mike Hammond, CEO of UHB Charity and Fisher House UK said, “We are so grateful for the years of support we have received from the ABF. As we celebrate the tenth anniversary since Fisher House opened its doors, we would like to say a huge thank you to the ABF for everything that they have do. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to provide the support our military heroes and their families deserve.”

Brigadier (Ret’d) Peter Monteith, Chief Operating Officer, Army Benevolent Fund, added:
“Military families deserve a safe, secure and welcoming environment during periods of hospital treatment. As the Army’s national charity, we are proud of our longstanding association with Fisher House and this latest grant to its work helping Army families at times of stress and need."
