Fantastic Armed Forces Day in Robin Hood

For my annual Armed Forces Day coffee morning today  I joined local residents and members of the armed forces community for coffee, cakes and a round of bingo.  It’s always a wonderful occasion in which people come together to show their appreciation for the work of our armed forces and our support for veterans and the families of those serving overseas.

Kalvinder and her husband arrived proudly carrying a photograph of their son who was spending Armed Forces Day serving in the Royal Air Force in the Falkland Islands. Veterans displayed their medals. And everyone chipped to the raffle to raise funds for the local branch of the Royal British Legion.

I hold an event for Armed Forces Day in the constituency each year. As well as tea, coffee and cakes – which this year were kindly sponsored by the local Morrisons – we also always have a raffle and this year raised £204 in funds for the Royal British Legion.

Congratulations to Peter Aldred on winning the star prize – a special limited edition Royal Air Force plate. And to the lady from Robin Hood who (eventually) won House of Commons chocolates in the bingo. And thank you everyone who was able to come along and show support.
