The founding shareholders of MAST both served in the UK armed forces and in selecting a charity they wanted to retain that important link.
MAST’s chosen charity is Veterans Aid (VA). All of our fundraising proceeds are donated to Veterans Aid. In supporting VA we hope not only to help access much-needed donations but also to raise awareness and inform a wider audience of the plight of those that find themselves homeless and in crisis.
The charities vision is to enable sustainable independent living but of course, this can take, weeks, months and even years of investment. They start with the provisions of food, clothing and shelter. Further support such as counselling, rehabilitation and medical treatments may also be required, as well as education, developing new skills and identifying employment opportunities before the veteran is ready to move into a new home.
