SSAFA's Akrotiri Service Committee is a group of volunteers who work together to raise money to support serving personnel and their families at a time of need, fund local community projects and raise awareness of SSAFA.
We offer discreet financial and practical assistance to families in need, for example; covering hotel and fuel costs for hospital visits, providing emergency family funds, assisting with childcare costs.
We contribute to community projects, which have included:
The Oasis Garden
Creche - Toy Donation
Air Terminal - Contribution to the Soft Play Area
Swimming Pool - Repair of Pool Equipment
Saddle Club - New Helmets, Vests & Blankets
Station Fun Day - Children's Entertainment
The Sub Aqua Club - New Equipment
Funding for various sections to help with improving Welfare Facilities.
We also run the Loan Store, with all profits going to SSAFA.
The Loan Store is located behind the Hive in the Oasis Centre and open from 9am - 11am, Monday - Friday.
Our stock includes; Carpet Cleaners, Car Seats, Travel Cots, Pushchairs, Z Beds, Baking Tins, Santa Suits and more!
