At Quirk Solutions we are big believers in the balance of work and giving something back. Over the past couple of years we have focused all our social giving efforts on the Royal Marines Charity however in recent months we decided to widen the scope and we now support 3 very worthwhile organisations with a wide range of supports to members of multiple communities and we are very proud to support them.
The SSAFA is a hugely important charity, as it supports members of the Armed Forces, Veterans and all their families, including bereaved families, from all three services. As the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity, all monies raised go to providing practical, emotional and financial support to anyone who is serving or has ever served, and their families.
To mark the 100th anniversary of the battle of Passchendaele in August 2017, our Managing Director Chris Paton cycled 250 miles in 3 days, from Le Havre through France to the battlefield in Ypres & Passchendaele. Chris has experienced first hand the good the SSAFA does for friends of Quirk Solutions and their families. Chris is already in training for the 2018 cycle.
