Veterans 65+ project

March 13th, 2018 by Alison

I would like  to take this opportunity to inform you about a new scheme we’ve launched this week called the Veterans Together Network. We’re working with veterans aged over 65 to help them set up groups in different areas around the county to reduce loneliness and improve health and wellbeing.

Weekly group sessions have started at Broxtowe Day Service with activities including cooking and reminiscence sessions. Other groups are being set up in Bingham and Toton, with another planned for Mansfield.

 We need your help to promote the scheme and encourage ex-service veterans from your area to get involved, so please spread the word.

 All the information about the scheme is on our website, I’ve added the link below:

 I’ve also attached a flyer and poster which features 100 year old  veteran George Wesley-Thornley from West Bridgford. If you would like  copies of the leaflets and posters for your area, please email<>
