Event: Hull Torchlight Procession
Location: Hull City Centre

The NGVFA were invited to walk in the Torchlight Procession to mark the opening of the Freedom Festival in Hull.

We had the honour to be part of a very spectacular procession which saw hundreds of different groups, charities and organisations and local people carry lit torches through the streets of Hull to mark the opening of the 2013 Freedom Festival. For us it is significant as our veterans fought for freedoms and injustices just as William Wilberforce did.

All the staff, volunteers and some family members came together with one of our local Hull veterans Mike Ford and his family.

The procession walked down High Street in Hull where a 2 minute silence was held. This was a spectacular sight and very moving.
