Armed Forces Day Committee Looking For New Recruits

armed forces day 2014_1The Armed Forces Day Committee are looking for new recruits to ensure that this year’s event takes place.

It’s planned for 25th June and aims to raise awareness and support for the armed forces community and to highlight the outstanding contribution it makes to Britain.

Dave Hawkins is acting as ‘stand-in’ Chairman following the resignation of Smudge Smith. Jenny Bagnall has also stood down as Secretary.

Dave says he hopes to attract four new committee members.

He says that you don’t need specific skills, but you would have to be willing to give up some time for evening meetings leading up to Armed Forces Day. And you would have to help on the day itself.

This year, islands’ organisers intend raising cash for the ‘Walking with the Wounded’ charity, which specialises in getting wounded service personnel into the workplace by retraining and offering support.

If you’re interested, Dave would like to hear from you by 26th March. His number is 422132.
