The Afghan Appeal Fund was formed in Autumn 2005 as the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps trained for deployment to Afghanistan as ISAF. It was a community effort headed up by Caroline Richards, Lt Col Sean Armstrong and Dr John Ross. Since then, over £600,000 has been raised and we are now on our eleventh school in a sixth Afghan province. The charity is run on a purely voluntary basis.
