The Ministry of Defence is offering grants for local communities that want to celebrate Armed Forces Day 2018.
Armed Forces Day will celebrate 10 years this summer and the Ministry of Defence (MOD) is offering grants of up to £10,000 to help community event organisers put together a day of celebration. In previous years this funding has helped to fund hundreds of events across the UK, from large community displays to school talks and small family fun days.
This years’ Armed Forces Day takes place on Saturday 30 June with a major national event to be held in the historic North Wales seaside town of Llandudno. The hosts, Conwy Council, are planning a range of activities including a military parade, performances from military bands, exciting displays of military equipment and spectacular military fly-overs.
Regional celebrations will also be held across the country, giving the public a chance to say “Thank You” to the Armed Forces for their contribution to the nation.
