Celebs want you to have a brew to help Armed Forces

Celebs want you to have a brew to help Armed Forces

It's one of the most British traditions there is. But whacking the kettle on and having a cuppa this June could help out members of the Armed Forces community. 

The Big Brew Up is an annual event organised by the SSAFA, the UK's oldest Armed Forces charity which provides welfare and support for those serving in the Armed Forces, their families and veterans.

Running throughout the month of June, the campaign asks the UK public to get together with friends, families and neighbours to host a good old-fashioned tea party to raise vital funds to support the SSAFA's ongoing brilliant work. 

But you won't be brewing up alone. Famous faces including Angela Rippon, who's father served in the Navy, are backing the campaign to get us slurping on cups of the warm and wet stuff. Coronation Street actor Antony Cotton, reality star Kate Wright and singer-songwriter Fleur East are also supporting the campaign.
