(Grateful thanks to our local Official Photographer, Jim Pascoe who has generously waived his fee and requested that instead it be donated to the three military charities.)

The monies raised at the two events - "Pack Up Your Troubles" Commemorative Concert and the Battle's Over Event will be shared between the three nominated charities - The Royal British Legion; SSAFA and the RAF Benevolent Fund.
