Leading workwear manufacturer Dickies (UK) has donated clothing worth £10,000 to Troop Aid. Founded in 2006, Troop Aid is a charity set up to provide basic necessities to wounded service men and women returning from the Gulf and Afghanistan.

Wounded soldiers arriving back in the UK only have the combat uniforms they are wearing and no money to purchase civilian clothing or other essential items. Funded entirely by voluntary donations and fund raising events, Troop Aid supplies washing and shaving kit, trainers, socks, underwear, tracksuits, T-shirts, sweatshirts and fleece jackets. DVDs, books and snacks are also provided.

“Everyone at Dickies has the greatest admiration for the brave men and women serving our country in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Maurice Morton, Dickies Sales and Marketing Director. “We are proud to support Troop Aid and the magnificent work it does.”

Troop Aid deals directly with the Defence Welfare Service at Selly Oak Hospital and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham along with other medical establishments. His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has supported Troop Aid since its formation and is patron to the charity.
