ABF The Soldiers’ Charity East Anglia

East Anglia

Welcome to our East Anglia office, based in Merville Barracks, Colchester, Essex.  Our local team is made up of Peter Harclerode, Simon Ferrier and Alys Potter working with our fantastic committees, volunteers and supporters across the length and breadth of the region, raising both money and awareness. Together we run many exciting fundraising events throughout the year, from extreme challenges such as go-karting and bike rides to concerts, curry lunches and afternoon tea.

In line with current Government direction, we have closed our office in Merville Barracks, until further notice and are now working from home. We have had to take the difficult, but entirely appropriate, decision to cancel or postpone many of our forthcoming events. Rest assured that we are busy making plans for the future, and ensuring that we continue to provide the support needed by our soldiers, veterans and their immediate families in genuine need.

If you need to get hold of us, please email us at eastanglia@soldierscharity.org or call us on one of the following numbers:

Regular updates will also be posted on our regional Facebook page www.facebook.com/soldierscharityeastanglia. We will keep everybody posted about event postponements and cancellations as speedily as possible. Our priority will always be the safety and well-being of our participants, suppliers, volunteers, fundraisers and our staff
