Armed Forces Day 2019

Armed Forces Day RAF

This Saturday (June 29) marks the annual Armed Forces Day in the UK. Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.

The first Armed Forces Day in the United Kingdom took place on 27 June 2009. The date was chosen as it marked the day after the anniversary of the first investiture ceremony for the Victoria Cross military medal for heroism, held on 26 June 1857, since then Armed Forces Day takes place on the last Saturday each June.

The National Event for 2019 is being held in Salisbury, with local events taking place across the country, the Armed Forces Day website details every event and parade to mark the occasion in the UK including:

#HostEnvironmentalPledge.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.

To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.

It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; Student Minds, LandAid and Just a Drop.
