We are extremely proud supporters of the Felix Fund – a bomb disposal charity that supports bomb disposal experts and their families.
We sponsored a C-IED event last night (08/10/15) at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. Everything about it was magnificent – learning about real people who are affected by this cause really personalises what this wonderful bomb disposal charity does.
Pictured is the resplendent ceiling of The Painted Hall that I’ve chosen to share, as it really takes your breath away, exactly in the same way the wonderful people do who put their lives on the line on a daily basis for us across the globe. Co-designed by Sir Christopher Wren it has often been described as the UK equivalent of the Sistine Chapel.
The Felix Fund exists to support any military personnel who have conducted or assisted with Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) duties – along with their families.
This includes ammunition technical officers, ammunition technicians, ECM operators, drivers, infantry escorts, weapons intelligence specialists, dog handlers, searchers or any other military personnel involved in EOD duties.
If you have been affected and need the charities help, then you can apply online or by post if you qualify. The Felix Fund has been established to help personnel from any military or SO15 (Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Unit) who have been involved with Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) duties, and their families. If you are servinging or retired you may be eligible. It is worth remembering that you do not have to be injured to qualify.
