The Soldiering On Awards will honour the 2017 finalists at the House of Lords on Thursday 9th February. Hosted by General the Lord Dannatt GCB CBE MC DL with the charity’s patron, the Rt Hon Earl Howe PC, in attendance, the evening celebrates the achievements of all of those who have been chosen as finalists by the Award’s Independent Judges Panel. It is with delight the charity welcomes new Cobseo Chairman, General Sir John McColl KCB CBE DSO, to his first Soldiering On Awards event.
Forty-six finalists in nine categories were announced in December (see Cobseo newsletter 17 December 2016). The individuals and groups were nominated by members of the general public and more than 40 charities and not-for-profit organisations either representing or associated with the wider Armed Forces Community.
The 2017 Soldiering On Awards will take place on Friday, 24 March at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel, London. The charity offers a special table rate for Cobseo members. If interested, contact Chief Executive Anne Donoghue at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07708 944007.
