Our monthly fundraising ‘Veterans Breakfast’!

During the special Remembrance Sunday in 2018 which marked 100 years since Armistice Day, a group of Veterans got together in the pub and discussed the lack of wreaths.

Everyone agreed it would be a good idea to club together for an Ottery Veterans wreath – and what better way than to have a monthly breakfast?!

Our first breakfast was in February, then we met in April and May. The next breakfast coincides with the Ottery Food & Families Festival on June 1st.

The breakfast is for Veterans only and if you would like to join in, you will need to get in touch with Rob McGovern – message via Facebook please.

The Veterans Breakfast is on the first Sunday of the month. We meet at the Volunteer at 10.30.

It costs £10 for the breakfast of which £3 goes into the collection towards the wreath. As we grow we hope funds raised will also be able to support local Veterans in need.
