Winners of the 2016/17 Carrington Drum Award 8 Training Battalion REME collect their prize from the Army Sergeant Major Glenn Haughton at Wellington Barracks. Second place was awarded jointly to 29 Royal Logistic Corps and the Army Foundation College Harrogate.
If you are up for the task, try entering your Unit in the 2017/18 Carrington Drum Award and see how much money you can raise as a Unit.
Each year, major and minor units, both Regular and Reserve, enter the Carrington Drum to win this prestigious prize by raising funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. Whether it is by organising a fun day, a mountain climb, a coffee morning, a lorry pull, a log run or a car wash…all your fundraising ideas and income will go towards your Unit entry. Winners are decided after the closing date. It’s never too late to enter so fill in the form below and start your entry for the 2017/18 challenge!
The winners will normally be judged to be the Unit or sub-Unit that raises, or helps to raise, the most money for the Charity, with extra points awarded for creativity or involvement of the wider community promoting the Charity to new supporters. Previous years’ winners have seen Regiments & Corps and Training Units equally represented. The Drum is presented at the Charity’s Annual Reception in June, stays in the winning unit for one year and is engraved with the winner’s name.
Thank you for all your support and good luck!
