Our Military Affiliates

We are proud of our affiliations with HMS Dauntless, the Scots Guards, No. 47 Squadron RAF, and the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (Princess Royal’s Volunteer Corps) – also known as the ‘FANY’. Our financial support primarily assists with a range of welfare activities for the service men and women, and their families, as well as grants for special projects.

Support for the Armed Forces

In October 2019, the FANY delivered a hands-on first aid demonstration at Clothworkers’ Hall for our Young Freedom Reception. The event was a great opportunity for Clothworkers to witness a small part of the services that the FANY are able to provide – while developing life-saving skills throughout the evening. A month later, FANY volunteers were deployed immediately to staff the Casualty Bureau on behalf of the City of London Police in the wake of the terrorist attack near London Bridge (29 November). In addition, members of the Corps who were trained in Trauma Risk Management (TRiM) provided support to Fishmongers’ staff at their first regrouping since the incident. City of London Police later recognised their efforts with a plaque and presentation ceremony.

Clothworkers’ contributed £15,000 to the FANY towards salary costs in 2019. A grant of £20,000 went to the Scots Guards for the Soldiers and Family Welfare programme. Additionally, we sponsored the inaugural Clothworkers’ Scots Guards Community Awards at an event at Clothworkers’ Hall in June. Finally, we awarded £22,000 to No. 47 Squadron RAF for its Family Welfare programme.
