Staff and customers at Wetherspoon pubs across the UK marked Armed Forces Day with various events and fundraising activities.
A National annual event, Armed Forces Day is an opportunity to raise the public’s awareness of the contribution made to our country by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. It gives the nation a chance to ‘Show Your Support’.
Many of the events at the pubs raised money for the Help for Heroes (H4H) charity, founded to provide direct, practical support to the servicemen and women injured in current conflicts.
Among the many pubs to raise money were: The Sir William de Wessyngton, in Washington (pictured) raised £510; The Lister Arms, in Ilkley, raised £200 for Royal British Legion, £80 for Air Force Cadets & £50 for CLIC Sargent; The Lord Rosebery, in Scarborough raised £250 for H4H & £250 for CLIC Sargent; The Liquorice Gardens, in Worksop raised £1,190; The Tichenham Inn, in Ickenham raised £1,700; The Square Sail, in Lincoln raised £1,300 and The Edwin Waugh, in Heywood raised £800 for CLIC Sargent.
