This information is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. The Ministry of Defence (MOD) funds Armed Forces charities through grants in aid, grants, normal commercial contract arrangements, and (since 2013) through fines levied on banks for the attempted manipulation of Libor (the Spending Review and Autumn Statement 2015 has detailed the charities receiving Libor funding over the next three years). The regional distribution of MOD funding is a matter for the recipient charities.
