Welfare Organisation (ex-service) for the benefit of Burma Star holders, their widows and dependents.
We hold three meetings per year and the Annual War Memorial Parade and Service which is held on the 2nd Sunday in July, 2.30 at the old chapel in Jackson Lane, parading to the War Memorial, Oak Lane, Kerridge, for the service at 3.00pm at which a public collection is taken.
The committee is composed of Kerridge ex-servicemen and invited local residents. The War Memorial is a private memorial bought by Kerridge people in 1918 to the memory of their loved ones and later those lost in 1939-45. The memorial and garden grounds are maintained to a high standard by the committee and supported by voluntary subscriptions and donations.
Bollington supports the valuable work of SSAFA with a network of Caseworkers and Visitors. Local volunteers are always needed to keep up the level of support.

The Bollington branch provides reliable, caring and trusted lifelong service to those who serve, or used to serve, in our Armed Forces, including Reserve Forces, and their families. The SSAFA helps both practically and financially whenever they are needed.
