Event: Beverley Armed Forces Day
Location: Beverley

The event was held on Sunday 1st July in the Beverley market place and attended by Maria Rusling, Louise Clifford, Sally-Ann Spencer Grey, Christine Clifford, John Clifford and Noel Weston.

We were very lucky with the weather as it stayed dry all day but was a little windy. There wasn't a big army presence this year so not a lot of noise coming from that area this time. The usual participants were there, Royal British Legion (who couldn't put up their Gazebo as it was broken), Beverley Male Choir, marching band and other guest singers on the stage.

We took the army equipment with us again and this went down great with kids of all ages (even the adult kids!!!) who all wanted to put on the gas masks and shoot with the gun even the girls (hooray for girl power). At the end of the day a few of us had rippling muscles due to lifting the Bergen so many times but I suppose it's one way of keeping fit.

We had a good flow of visitors to the stall and sold quite a few clothing items and even some of the teddies but more importantly we were raising the profile of the charity.
