Visit to Highgrove Gardens

On Wednesday 20th June, 47 beneficiaries and their escorts were taken on a tour of Highgrove Gardens, by kind permission of HRH The Prince of Wales. Blown away by the beauty of their surroundings, many found the trip a cathartic experience with laughter and smiles trickling through the whole group throughout the afternoon. Representing 14 organisations from all three services and spanning a variety of age groups, the trip also provided the opportunity for individuals to meet new friends – a direct representation of what the Association aims to do: address the causes of isolation, reduce loneliness and, overall, have a bit of fun!

The Not Forgotten Association Has Joined Amazon Smile

The NFA has joined up with Amazon as part of their Amazon Smile initiative. This means that you can raise money for the NFA every time you buy something on Amazon. From that new laptop or television, to the washing up liquid and loo roll, no matter what you purchase 0.5% will go directly to the Association. It may not seem a lot, but every little helps! All you have to do is head to, sign in, search for ‘The Not Forgotten Association’ in the bar on the right hand side and Bob’s your uncle – your good deed done for the day.

Buckingham Palace Garden Party – Thursday 7th June

The Garden Party at Buckingham Palace is the high point in our calendar and this year demand and interest in attending was greater than ever recorded. We believe this was due to our Patron attending, the increased awareness of the charity following a concerted effort to improve our social media presence and recognition of the significant value our events have on the beneficiaries. This high level of demand led us to increase the invitations to the Garden Party and some 2,500 attended on Thursday 7th June 2018.

The guests represented over 110 military organisations and charities, and 32 different military associated residential homes.
