We are not a huge charity, we do not have celebrities supporting us and we don't have thousand of pounds in the bank, but with the support of the public we have achieved so much. This is just a few of our achievements in the past three years.

  • We have unblocked the system and got the Veterans Legion d'honneur awarded to them when they were seemingly lost in administration.
  • We are arranging a dinner for the Veterans and their families at Southwick House for the 75th anniversary of D Day in 2019.
  • When one of our boys needed to go on to oxygen at home we fixed his electrical problems so he would not have power cuts in the night.
  • We make home and hospital visits and do their shopping if they are alone. 
  • We take the boys away twice a year to Europe to the places that are important to them and to pay their respects to the fallen.
  • We give them all a birthday cake.
  • We have an annual reunion where they can bring their families to meet the team.

All the above is achieved by sponsorship and donations to enable the veterans to have what they have described as the most wonderful "final chapter". The sad thing is that we are now running out of funds and urgently need to replenish the coffers so we can carry on doing what we do for as long as we need to do it.

Please consider a small donation to help us support our veterans. Its the least we can do.
