We are delighted to announce that our Charity has received a significant grant of £286,000 from the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, which will continue to assist us in supporting soldiers, veterans and their immediate families, for life.
Following its 19th consecutive sell-out year, the Tattoo announced that it would be donating an impressive £1 million to UK-based charitable organisations, including the three service charities: ourselves, The RAF Benevolent Fund and The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.
The first Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo took place in 1950, with just eight events in the show programme. Since then, more than 14 million people have attended the annual spectacle, with this year’s audience exceeding 220,000 visitors. Over the course of the 68 annual Tattoos, more than £10 million has been donated.
