The Friends of ssafa(Soldiers, Sailors and Airmens Families Association)Dorset have organised a Sunday curry lunch for a decade, previously at Canford School. The venue this year, on February 15, was Bryanston School, Blandford Forum which was attended by 143 diners. Bournemouth 1 Probus was well represented, and with a few from other local Probus clubs, made up some 24% of the attendees. Many spoke highly of the quality food and service and a show of hands voted for this to be the venue for future years.
The Friends make an important contribution to the funds needed by ssafa Dorset Branch to provide lifelong support for Serving and ex-Service men and women and their families. This year's curry lunch resulted in a surplus of about £2,000, thanks to the generous support of our members, inter alia.
Provisional reservations can now be made for the lunch in February 2016
