21st February – Veterans@Heritage Outreach

Mission Motorsport have set up a new outreach programme for veterans called Veterans@Heritage. On the third Wednesday of every month veterans are invited to the former WWII bomber base, RAF Bicester, now the UK centre of historic motoring, Bicester Heritage.

You don’t need to be interested in classic cars to attend. Veterans@Heritage is an opportunity to have a brew, banter, speak to caseworkers from Veterans UK, SSAFA and RBL and maybe even spend some time on the test track. Each month will present different opportunities to learn photography, mechanics, local military history and much more.
