To mark this year’s Armed Forces Day on Saturday 27 June, why not march virtually up Ben Nevis and help raise vital funds for military charity, Care for Veterans?
Help honour and celebrate those that serve and have served in the Armed Forces by marching 8,810 steps – the height of Ben Nevis.
Care for Veterans provides residential nursing care and rehabilitation to physically disabled ex-Service personnel and their families. With events cancelled or postponed, the charity has lost a major source of income and still needs to raise £1.9 million this year. This virtual event is one of many that Care for Veterans has organised to get people involved and help provide its vital services.
Event organiser, Phoebe Tether, explains,
“Obviously, due to the current circumstances we cannot host our usual popular events, so we are in desperate need of support from our community. With many people still stuck at home, this virtual event is a great way for people to stay active, get exercising, whilst also raising some money. If you’d like to get involved with this, or any other event, we would love to hear from you. Please know that your help will go a long way in ensuring that the veterans in our care continue to receive the support they need.”
