Stadium Manager of GTFC said that he was "delighted" to team up with SSAFA for the seasons ahead: "we are delighted to partner up with SSAFA, especially as November the 11th marks 100 years of the end of the first world war". Find out more about what SSAFA are doing to commemorate WW1 100 and stay updated on arrival of new stories, from the relatives of WW1 participants. There will be a host of designated fixtures acknowledging SSAFA, throughout this season. Regular information will follow so make sure you keep in touch with the SSAFA Lincolnshire page.

    Raising money for Grimsby & Cleethorpes Division

    A student-run bake sale at Franklin College in Grimsby has raised £51.07 for the Grimsby & Cleethorpes Division of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity.

    The event, held by Ebony Allen, a student at Franklin College also sold raffle tickets to win several prizes including tickets to a GTFC match and a signed GTFC ball and shirt. The exciting prizes were all kindly donated by GTFC.

    Ebony Allen, Public Service student at Franklin College, said:

    “I chose to support SSAFA as I believe that the Armed Forces don’t get enough respect and when they need support there is not many places to turn to. I find it amazing that SSAFA is there to help and support the Armed Forces when they need it the most.”

    The money raised from the bake sale will go towards supporting veterans and their families in the local area. Whether it is practical, emotional or financial assistance, SSAFA Lincolnshire’s network of volunteers are at hand to ensure no veteran’s call goes unanswered.

    Speaking after the event Mark Smith, Caseworker at SSAFA Lincolnshire, Grimsby & Cleethorpes Division, said:

    “This was a fantastic event which gave us a great opportunity to raise awareness about the fantastic work SSAFA do, not just locally but nationally too. And of course, who can resist a bit of cake!”


    Raising money for Grimsby & Cleethorpes Division

    The Grimsby branch of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity has been presented with a £230 cheque from Grimsby-based Astral Lodge of Freemasons No. 3841.

    The freemasons of Astral Lodge meet monthly to encourage fellowship and to raise money for local charities. The Grimsby branch of SSAFA was selected by the Lodge’s Master, David Stapleton because of his own experiences of the military and his great admiration for all the work SSAFA do for the Armed Forces community in Grimsby.

    The money raised by Astral Lodge in one of their monthly meetings will go towards supporting veterans and their families in the local area. Whether it is practical, emotional or financial assistance, SSAFA Grimsby’s network of volunteers are at hand to ensure no veteran’s call goes unanswered.

    David Stapleton, The Lodge’s Master at Astral Lodge, said:

    "As a child raised in an Army community, SSAFA were always there to provide guidance and support for my family. When I later served as a Military Policeman, they were still there, engaged with soldiers and their families, doing great work. Many Freemasons come from a similar background, and we all appreciate the charitable and compassionate work they continue to do".

    Mark Trainor, Honorary Divisional Secretary at SSAFA Grimsby, said:

    “We are honoured to have been selected as one of Astral Lodge’s charity drives and extremely thankful for the donations. The money raised will go a long way in helping us to support the military community in Grimsby.”
