Great weather for great events!
Keen to reach both the public and serving personnel to raise the profile of uk4u and to gather feedback on the Christmas boxes, we have had some lovely days out in the sunshine, and met some great people at various events throughout the summer.
The national Armed Forces Day event in Stirling was amazing; this fantastic free family day was kicked off with a parade of serving military personnel and cadets who were joined by over 1000 Veterans.
Thank you so much to the Fleet Air Arm Association and the Royal Air Force Association Brecon who promoted uk4u at their local Armed Forces Day events.
Families Day at RAF Benson was brilliant too, with really impressive displays from the Red Arrows, The Blades (aerobatic team), RAF Chinook Display team and RAF Falcons; the Dakota certainly attracted a lot of attention too!
The uk4u stand looked great at both events and we are really grateful for all of the donations as well as opportunity to chat to members of our Armed Forces who continue to do a great job. Despite the drawdown in Afghanistan, many will be deployed on Operations on Christmas Day 2014 in ships, submarines, the Falkland Islands, Cyprus, Bahrain and in Diego Garcia…once again, they will all receive a gift from the nation, sent by uk4u.
