Soldiers from Parachute Regiment visit Moneycorp Head Office. 

In 2017, some of the Moneycorp team, in association with City A.M., hosted a day for, ‘Support Our Paras’. Support Our Paras is a charity which supports serving injured soldiers from the Parachute Regiment and their families. They provide welfare assistance to serving soldiers to complement State provision as well as providing services such as support for mental health, course to assist transition into civilian life and memorials to those who have served. 

During the day, a number of injured paras arrived at Moneycorp head office in London, Victoria to be greeted and paired up with corporate and wholesale dealers. They spent the day helping to answer calls. They also shared their experiences of serving in the Parachute Regiment with corporate clients who also joined for the day.  

The day was even more successful than anticipated as £100,000 was raised for the ‘Support Our Paras’ charity, whilst also raising awareness for this wonderful cause.
