Winners of the 2018/19 Carrington Drum Award, the Army Foundation College Harrogate, collected the Carrington Drum prize and certificate from General Sir Mike Jackson GCB, CBE, DSO, DL, President of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, at the Charity’s annual Reception on Wednesday night (5 June) at 116 Pall Mall; we were also delighted that the Army Sergeant Major, Gavin Paton, was in attendance to see the winners accepting their prizes. Together with runners-up 29 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps (2nd place) and 16 Medical Regiment (3rd place) the combined monies raised by the three winning units were in excess of £100,000.
If you are up for the task, try entering your Unit in the 2019/20 Carrington Drum Award and see how much money you can raise as a Unit. Each year, major and minor units, both Regular and Reserve, enter the Carrington Drum to win this prestigious prize by raising funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. Whether it is by organising a fun day, a mountain climb, a coffee morning, a lorry pull, a log run or a car wash…all your fundraising ideas and income will go towards your Unit entry. Winners are decided after the closing date. It’s never too late to enter so fill in the form below and start your entry for the 2019/20 challenge!
The winners will normally be judged to be the Unit or sub-Unit that raises, or helps to raise, the most money for the Charity, with extra points awarded for creativity or involvement of the wider community promoting the Charity to new supporters. Previous years’ winners have seen Regiments & Corps and Training Units equally represented. The Drum is presented at the Charity’s Annual Reception in June, stays in the winning unit for one year and is engraved with the winner’s name.
Thank you for all your support and good luck!
