What can you bring to Armed Forces Day in June?

Our Armed Forces do us proud so we’re proud to support their annual community celebration on Islington Green every summer. This year it’s on June 24 and we’re asking for your help to make it a really fun day.

Raffle prizes? A meal from your restaurant? Tea for two? A free haircut? Soft drinks and snacks for the day? A barrel of beer? A face-painting expert? Music? What can your business give?

Our Liverpool Road branch of Waitrose are generously bringing flowers for the ceremony of remembrance, Bellanger brasserie will be serving free tea and coffee, Costa coffee will be bringing coffee and cakes, and Meat People in Essex Road are donating a meal for two for the raffle prize.

Armed Forces Day is all about war veterans and their families getting together to commemorate those they’ve lost and the heroic efforts of those retired or still serving. There will be a ceremony at 10.30-11am, followed by military music and displays, refreshments and entertainment. The whole community is welcome. Contact us on 0207 288 4377 to pledge your donation…
