Warrington — 24 June 2017
Warrington Armed Forces Day 2017
Blue Apple Veterans is a locally-based Armed Forces charity (number 1155417). We intend to erect a marquee which will allow the general public to be introduced to Blue Apple and the services we offer, a ‘fancy dress’ and photography opportunity in historical and modern military uniform, a photo booth will be made by our volunteers (all veterans). Blue Apple Veterans will offer ‘old fashioned’ events including face painting, hook a duck, the bakeoff, craft fair, upcycling furniture, cake stall, jams and marmalades (recommended), fresh vegetable sales from our allotments, bird and squirrel boxes made by our veterans from recycled pallets, healthy hanging baskets all grown by our veterans and their families. Our stall will be manned by volunteers and our partner charities including hearing voices, Macintyres, The Duckpond and Young Carers Warrington. All funds raised will go back into Blue Apple Veterans to expand our work and training with local veterans and their families.
