March 2024


We are delighted to announce our latest Affiliate Partnership with TRS Training Ltd.

TRS Training Limited was established in 2011, with their head office located in St Helens. They specialise in recruitment and training solutions for businesses in road haulage, logistics and warehousing. They also provide training and apprenticeships to the logistics sector.

Their offering is vast, with commercial courses such as Transport Manager, Forklift Truck and Electric Vehicle Courses, as well as being a Bootcamp provider delivering LGV Driving. They also offer a Sector based Work Academy and Warehousing Skills Course.

They work with numerous training partners and charities such as Veterans into Logistics, The UK Warehousing Association and The Builders Merchants Federation. They also work with an impressive list of retailers such as Asda, Dunhelm, Greggs, B&M, Currys, Harrods, Matalan and McDonalds, to name but a few.

We are excited to have them onboard and look forward to working together, hopefully offering our service users the opportunity to up-skill or seek training and employment in the future.

The Standing Tall Foundation have received a major boost from Warrington-based building services company B-engineering Group.

As a newly appointed Affiliate partner, they are helping us to convert a four-bedroomed terraced property in the town into a house of multiple occupation for armed forces veterans in need.

B-engineering Group is providing equipment including a boiler, bathrooms, showers and solar panels to help refurbish the house after choosing Standing Tall as one of its charities of the year.

The company is pledging further support for us during the course of 2024, including undertaking fundraising.

Managing director Rob Ditchfield said: As a company we’ve signed the Armed Forces Covenant and we like to support veterans and their families whenever we can. We have a number of veterans in our team, and they have all been welcome additions to the staff due to their great attitude and work ethic. Some of our team know Andy and he’s an inspirational person, so when the opportunity arose to support Standing Tall, it seemed a really good fit for us. We’re really pleased to be able to support the charity in its work.”

Our Founder Andy, who holds an MBE for his charity work, said: “It’s fantastic to receive the support from B-engineering Group, whose backing means we can provide a much-needed house in St Helens to support veterans. We’re delighted to have the company on board as an affiliate partner of the Standing Tall Foundation. It will be a great asset to our current partner stable, and the services it provides are invaluable for what we are trying to achieve with our accommodation.”

B-engineering Group is a family business which was founded in 1990 by Rob’s father Bernard. It employs more than 50 staff.

The company designs, installs and maintains heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, electrical and energy systems and solar PV panels in premises across sectors ranging from education, healthcare, leisure and hospitality to manufacturing, retailing, construction and nuclear. It is a specialist in decarbonising commercial properties and estates.

Under its B-Kind initiative, the company has helped numerous charities over the years by raising thousands of pounds, donating items and providing hundreds of employee hours of assistance.

Last year, it supported a range of good causes, including St Rocco’s Hospice in Warrington, sports teams and food banks.

Rob said: “We are a purpose-led business and like to do our bit to help make the world a better place.”

We are delighted to welcome you onboard as a partner and we look forward to seeing the HMO develop over time.

GAME ON!! Come and watch the game on Easter Sunday as two local charities go head to head in this exciting match.

Our very own STF Vets Select team take on FC Willowbrook in their very first football battle!

All proceeds raised on the day will be split between both charities to help us continue to support the people we do in the community.

Our STF Vets Select team was established last year and is made up of players from the Army, RAF, Navy, STF Team members and civilians. They have only played a few matches together but have already proved to be a force to be reckoned with!

Back in October last year they were crowned winners of the TV Allstars Celebrity Football Match after securing a 2-0 victory. The lads are across a range of ages and backgrounds, but the camararderie is plain to see, and it’s great to be representing a Tri-Service of players.

Who will take the cup?! Come down and see for yourself on the 31st March.
