The sound of Disney to raise funds for Troop Aid

Sarah Mason 30th Jan, 2018

THE MAGIC of Disney is set to fill Shirley Methodist Church next month to raise funds for Troop Aid.

The Firebird Singers will be presenting A Spoonful of Songs at the Stratford Road church on Saturday March 10.

From 7pm the choir will be singing favourites from classic films including The Lion King, Jungle Book and Toy Story.

The Solihull-based charity started in 2006 by three ex-servicemen Troop Aid has given a helping hand to personnel who are injured either on training exercise or in combat when they return to the United Kingdom without their personal effects or clothing.

Troop Aid supplies them with the ‘basic essentials’ in a grab bag.

Items in the bag include t-shirt and shorts, washing and shaving kit, towel, face flannel, toothpaste, toothbrush, shower mules, socks and underwear.

The charity also makes up grab bags for injured female service personnel.

In addition to this emergency pack Troop Aid also supplies on demand to the injured service personnel many other items of clothing and footwear such as tracksuits, hoodies, fleeces and trainers.

Tickets cost £8 and include refreshment.

They are available by calling the Troop Aid office on 0121 711 7215 between 9am and 3pm Monday to Friday.
