Project 71 is a support group for WW2 Veterans. Each year we make at least two trips to Normandy and one to Arnhem. We also take the boys on day trips and out for their birthdays. We can not do this without the generous support of the public. Any donation, no matter how small would help us considerably.

Poppies for the Unknown

is our big project in 2016.

A small team from Project 71 including 3 Normandy veterans, returned to France in June 2016 to lay a cross on every unknown grave in every CWGC cemetery in Lower Normandy.

Over three days we laid over 900 crosses in 15 cemeteries and will return in October to visit the remaining three that we did not have time to visit.

Our thanks go to everybody that helped us.

Our objective

is to support our veterans in any way we can and also to take as many back to the places they want to visit as possible. In 2016, with your support, we will be taking Normandy veterans on two trips to France, plus we will take our Market Garden boys to Arnhem in September.

We can do do this without your support.

If everybody that looked at this page gave just £1.00 it would be enough to take one of our boys away for a weekend
