Lest we forget

Remembrance is a special time of year for our charity. Every November, blind veterans, staff and volunteers come together to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

On Remembrance Sunday, Blind Veterans UK representatives take part in the march past the Cenotaph in London. For those not attending, we want to ensure that they can still join in or be represented at their local commemorations.

Laying a wreath is a symbol of respect and many choose to honour comrades or loved ones this way. We are calling out to our supporters to sponsor a wreath, so that veterans can be a part of Remembrance in their own communities.

“Many of our veterans are unable to make the journey to the Cenotaph in London, or would prefer to be surrounded by loved ones and veterans in their own community. Making wreaths available so more of our veterans can take an active part in Remembrance is so important.”
Colin Williamson
Blind veteran and President of Blind Veterans UK
