A new Charlton supporters group has been formed for past and present members of the armed forces.
The primary aims of Armed Forces Addicks are to:
- Establish links between past and present members of the forces community with a shared interest in the club.
- Provide a way to share unused tickets to members.
- Organising a group presence and travel to fixtures should others not have anyone else to go with.
- Establish a team of willing volunteers for fundraising opportunities.
- Establish a continuing point of presence for the club around Remembrance Day and Armed Forces Day.
- Become a point of contact for Armed Forces personnel from outside their own chain of command for the purposes of welfare and advice.
- Highlight achievements of members.
- Become a point of contact to the resident units in Woolwich Garrison and strengthen the bond between the club and the Armed Forces.
To join, supporters should be either serving or ex-serving members of either the regular or reserve armed forces. Those interested should email Harvey Marsden or Clive Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow Armed Forces Addicks on twitter @AFAddicksSC.
