Armed Forces Day 2019

Armed Forces Day is a great way to celebrate the Armed Forces community. We’re gearing up to get behind our nation’s Heroes on this special day and are proud to announce we are one of the charity partners of this year’s national event in Salisbury. Armed Forces Day itself takes place on 29th June but there are events taking place all around the country throughout the week. We’d love for you to join us at one of these events if you can. See below for information on an event near you. 

If you can’t make it to an event, there are lots of other activities you can get involved in either over the weekend or throughout the summer. Why not hold your own fundraising event, hold a bake sale or share your support via social media?

Armed Forces Day is all about saying thank you to the brave men and women who serve our country and however you choose to mark it, you’ll be showing that you’re proud to support them.
