As many of you will already be aware, a sensible decision has been taken to cancel all major events due to be held to mark Armed Forces Week, launching on Monday 22nd June. Despite this, the nation will still come together to show support for our Armed Forces this week through virtual and online activity. This year we will be focusing some days on specific groups of people and welcome you to join us:
Mon 22: Launch and Global Armed Forces
Tue 23: Innovation
Wed 24 : Reserves
Thu 25: Veterans
Fri 26: Cadets
Sat 27: Armed Forces Day
As supporters of the Armed Forces, we hope that you will help us celebrate our fantastic Reserves, Cadets and Veterans during Armed Forces Week using social media and online platforms. You can show your support via social media posts by tagging us @NorthWestRFCA (on Twitter) #ReservesDay #ArmedForcesDay and sharing a good news story of any of the Reservists, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers, Military Spouses or Veterans working for you. During this time, there are many who have stepped forward once again to offer their services in an act of selflessness, to help those that are vulnerable, or less fortunate than themselves, we would love to hear their story.
Are you currently or considering serving in the Reserve Forces? Register now for the Reserves Day Virtual Breakfast and Afternoon Tea.
If you are planning anything as an organisation, please do let us know, as we would also love to be able to celebrate that across our own networks. Please do send details of any of the above to our communications team via firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also #SaluteOurForces – where you take the opportunity to pay tribute to our Armed Forces by sharing a photograph of yourself or family or colleagues saluting on social media. The toolkit below offers further ideas on how to show your appreciation online. This link also includes the 2020 logos and supporting images. View the toolkit.
