On the ball for Troop Aid

OVER the Moon - that’s the verdict of Troop Aid co-founder Albert Sutton after Solihull Moors FC threw their weight behind the charity by advertising it on their shorts.

OVER the Moon - that’s the verdict of Troop Aid co-founder Albert Sutton after Solihull Moors FC threw their weight behind the charity by advertising it on their shorts.

“It costs over £100,000 a year to keep going and we pay no salaries,” said Albert, who lives off Lode Lane with his wife Pam who works as the charity’s secretary.

Troop Aid gives essential aid to injured soldiers returning to the UK from their postings overseas.

“We started back in 2006 when we delivered Christmas presents to them at Selly Oak Hospital. To see the way they struggled off the plane, they had absolutely nothing, it was so undignified,” said Albert. “We cannot thank Solihull Moors enough for this.”
