Enabling Gurkha veterans and widows to live with dignity.
The Gurkha Welfare Trust has been working in Nepal for over 50 years, delivering essential financial and medical aid to Gurkha veterans and widows, and working with local communities to provide access to clean water and education.
We pay a monthly pension to thousands of impoverished Gurkha veterans and widows who are not eligible to receive a British Army pension. Our Pensioner Support Teams travel by 4x4, motorbike, or on foot to visit veterans and widows in their own homes to deliver pensions, supply medicines and carry out health checks. Often battling monsoon rain, floods or landslides, our teams can be on the road for days to reach the remote mountain villages where our pensioners live.
Our other services include water and sanitation projects, school building and refurbishment programmes, two Residential Homes, and free medical camps providing life-changing treatment such as cataract operations.

Salisbury Foodbank has been supporting the people of Salisbury for over 20 years. Our humble beginnings in a garden shed in south Wiltshire made us the first foodbank of the Trussell Trust’s network.
Just like 22 years ago we don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. This year alone ( Mid Nov) we have fed 6025 people, with over 54,000 meals. 35% of these went to children.
Even during these hard economic times our supporters have blown us away with their generosity. Be it with food donations, cash, or the gift of time volunteering. This has allowed us to expand our services, open new foodbank centres and work with a local business to offer fresh fruit and veg direct to people’s homes. We are also collaborating with a specialist outside agency to fund case workers in our foodbank settings which offers a holistic approach to address the root cause of crisis and maximise peoples income.
Salisbury foodbank is Salisbury’s Food Bank. A place where community comes together to support each other. Thank you for being part of our mission and spreading awareness of our work.

Help for Heroes believes those who serve our country deserve support when they’re wounded.
Every day, men and women have to leave their career in the Armed Forces as a result of physical or psychological wounds; their lives changed forever.
The Charity helps them, and those still serving, to recover and get on with their lives by providing physical, psychological, financial and welfare support for as long as they need it. It also supports their families, because they too can be affected by their loved one’s wounds.
Help for Heroes receives almost no funding from the Government, which means it relies on the spirit and generosity of the great British public, its partners and volunteers to keep going. It has already supported more than 26,500 people and won’t stop until every wounded veteran gets the support they deserve.

Salisbury Women’s Refuge provides safe temporary accommodation for up to 12 women and their children who have experienced domestic abuse. We focus on giving them practical help and emotional support, working with a range of local agencies, so that they are able to resume active lives in the community in due course. Sadly, the level of domestic abuse is at a historic high, and so our services are much in demand. Most of our income comes from statutory agencies, but we rely on generous donors whose gifts allow us to extend the help we can offer beyond the bare minimum, and to improve our facilities. Our target for 2023 is to raise at least £40,000 in donations and grants.
