Dalkeith — 27 June 2015
Lothians Veterans Centre Armed Forces Day Football Festival / Family Fun Day
- King's Park,
I’d like to bring to you attention in relation to forthcoming event, LVC Armed Forces Day 5 aside festival. Our aim is to establish our first ever Armed Forces Day small sided football tournament, involving children from ages 2007/8s through to 2000s on 27th June 2015. This is a community focused family day, where we also aim to create stronger links and awareness with the local community as well as to promote volunteer opportunities for LVC service users.
The main focus for the day will be a 5-a-side football tournament that will take place throughout the morning. This will be supplemented in the afternoon with an adult football match. Ancillary to the football, we believe there is significant potential to create a larger community/family event, where other fun facilities could be available, such as an inflatable bouncy castle, stalls, pipe band, children rides etc.
Brief Lothians Veterans Centre (LVC) background, originally founded in July 2009, aims to support a person-centred approach to support ex-service personnel and their families across Edinburgh and the Lothians. W e work in conjunction with existing veteran organisations, local and community organisations covering our pillars of Health & Wellbeing, Housing, Employment & Social Inclusion.
9am – 6pm
