MD Capital Partners support the following charities:
Felix Fund exists to support any military personnel who have conducted or assisted with Explosive Ordnance Disposal duties, and their families.
The charities current focus is funding therapeutic normalisation breaks to help bomb disposal teams readjust to life in the UK after serving in Afghanistan.
They are also raising money for welfare and rehabilitation facilities, and building a hardship fund for all. This fund will of course support the trade’s many injured and bereaved, but also members of the wider ‘bomb disposal family’ who have otherwise fallen on hard times.
In April 2012 MD Capital Partners organised a lunch to benefit the charity. The event was an outstanding success raising in excess of £75,000 for the charity.
The firm has committed to holding a similar event on a yearly basis.
