STRONGER – Armed Forces Day Saturday 30 June 2018. Can you support with product donations?

Armed Forces Day is a chance to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.

To mark Armed Forces Day, the Islington Veterans Association will be holding an event on Islington Memorial Green on Saturday 30 June.  The day commences at 10.30am, with a parade and short commemoration blessing at 11am.   From midday, a picnic and fun day on the Green will take place, featuring veteran soldiers and cadets.

If you are a business that would like to support and show thanks our local armed forces veterans, the Islington Veterans Association is looking for any donations of food and drink for the veteran’s picnic.  Cake, sandwiches, fruit, biscuits, sweet & savoury bites, coffee & tea and soft drinks would all greatly appreciated.   The Association is also looking for any business that may like to donate bunches of flowers to be laid during the commemoration service.

If you would like to contribute, please email and we will make arrangements to collect items on the day.

Both the Islington Veteran’s Association and will promote those businesses supporting this worthy event.
