THE FESTIVE spirit will be in full swing at the Troop Aid Christmas Fayre this weekend.
From 10am until 1pm on Saturday (December 7) there will be a host of stalls including jewellery, handbags, candles and a cake stall with items baked by Troop Aid founder Pam Sutton.
There will also be a chance to meet Father Christmas at Solihull Methodist Church Hall on Blossomfield Road.
Since the charity was 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
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 other items of clothing and footwear such as tracksuits, hoodies, fleeces and trainers.
The bags are handed out both in the UK, with focus at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, and in more than 20 other countries.
Entrance costs 50p for adults and children go free.
