The 5th Armed Forces Day took place on 23rd June 2013

The day started with a cavalcade of 250 bikes riding along the seafront followed by the troops and pipe bands.


We were entertained by The Rock Choir and 99th Garrison followed by local rock bands who kept the music going all day.

Despite the occasional ‘shower’ (did I mention torrential rain?) we managed to raise the magnificent sum of £7046!!
 
This amount has been donated to Armed Forces charities.
 
 

Support Our Soldiers, our chosen charity have received £5046. SOS looks after and gives support to the families of local armed forces men and women serving abroad as well as sending shoe boxes full of goodies to serving personnel mostly in Afghanistan, for which they are extremely grateful.
The remainder was donated to Help For Heroes specifically to be used at Phoenix House which is based within Catterick Garrison.
Phoenix House is a recovery centre for those who have suffered from life changing injuries and illnesses while serving our country and enable them to lead active, independent and fulfilling lives.
