BFBS BIG SALUTE GRANT £2750 ON 19TH JANUARY 2018

BIG SALUTE GRANTS AWARDED TO 13 CHARITIES A wide range of charities that offer help and support to service personnel, veterans and their families have received BFBS Big Salute grants. Alabare, Association of Royal Naval Officers (ARNO), Blesma The Limbless Veterans, Bridge4Heroes, Combat Stress, Felix Fund, Glen Art, Help 4 Homeless Veterans, Learning Through Horses, The Matthew Project, Turn to Starboard, Unload and Veterans Aid have all received grants. The progress of these projects will all be featured on the Forces Network www.forces.net via its digital, radio and TV platforms. These latest grants have been funded by the 2016-2017 Big Salute campaign, thanks to generous donations and sponsored events undertaken by personnel and military communities from across the forces world. And this year, the Big Salute fundraising pot had additional support from the Services Sound and Vision Corporation’s (SSVC) Board of Trustees. Nicky Ness, Director of Forces Broadcasting and Entertainment for SSVC, said: “We are delighted that we will be able to support so many brilliant charitable projects this year. “A huge thank you goes out to all of our supporters who organise annual events as well as the many individuals who have taken time out from their busy service lives to raise funds for the Big Salute.”   For more information and ideas about raising money for the Big Salute go online to www.bigsalute.com
