BLESMA – The Limbless Veterans is calling on supporters to “Go Camo!” by innovatively incorporating camouflage into their fundraising events in some way, shape or form.
It could be clothing, it could be decoration or any other whacky idea you can think of. So get your thinking caps on and get creative!
There are lots of events happening up and down the country for BLESMA week, which kicks off on Monday 2 June.
Highlights include a screening in London of the historic film Reach for the Sky, a true story of Second World War pilot, amputee and BLESMA trustee Douglas Bader.
Sculptress Frances Segelman will be sculpting BLESMA member Private Alex Stringer in a live session in front of a small select audience and a traditional English garden party with around 300 guests will be held at the BLESMA Home in Blackpool. The branch of Sainsbury’s near the charity’s base in Chadwell Heath will run a collection all week.
Annette Hall, Head of Fundraising, said: “I am really excited to announce our first ever BLESMA Week – we want people from across the UK to join us in supporting our wounded Servicemen and women by putting on all kinds of events to raise vital funds that go towards supporting them for life. If you have a bright idea for a fundraiser – please do get in touch via our website!”
