Armed Forces Day

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) is providing funding to help organisations in the UK host an Armed Forces Day event this summer.  The aim of the funding is to show support for servicemen and women, past and present.
The following may apply for a grant up to £10,000, (providing the MoD contribution is no more than 50% of the total project cost):
o Local councils,
o Community organisations,
o Schools,
o Ex-service organisations, and
o Individuals.
In 2014 events took place in all parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. They included: 
o Armed Forces Day tea parties,
o Parades,
o Big band concerts,
o Civil war military re-enactments and
o Live and static demonstrations.
Events must occur a week either side of the National Armed Forces Day.
This year the celebrations will fall on Saturday 27 June 2015.
For further information, visit the Armed Forces Day website.
