WELCOME TO ADOPT A BRITISH SQUADDIE
Founded by Mark Stephens
Hello and welcome to Adopt A British Squaddie. Set up in June 2010 by the founder, Mark Stephens, the group has gone on to support over 8000 troops and sent 28,000+ parcels and letters to help boost morale and give a small taste of home. Unlike a number of other groups Adopt A British Squaddie allows members of the public to get involved with actively supporting
individual members of our Armed Services while they are out on Operational Deployment in Afghanistan and other conflict zones.
If you are a UK based resident and want to support UK troops then why not sign up to Adopt A Squaddie? Once registered you will be allocated a member of the armed forces (‘adoptee’), who
you will support while they are on tour.
This is achieved by sending welfare or comfort parcels with things to remind them of home and to make life a little easier in the hostile and difficult circumstances they are in.
You can also send letters (or blueys) and emails (e-blueys) once you have sent your first parcel to keep in touch if you both decide
If you are a member of the UK Armed Forces you can sign up to be ‘adopted’.
We are registered as a delivery partner with the MOD.
Adopting a member of our services is open to individuals and groups and once inside you will find everything you need to know about the group, its founders and what you can do to help. Thank you for visiting and for supporting our armed
