Remembrance Day Soldier Silhouette Grants Programme
The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust is making £2 million available in grants for a range of local voluntary and community organisations to purchase silhouettes of Tommies for community events that will celebrate the centenary of the end of World War One.
To be eligible, events should be open to people in the community, promoted ahead of time and bring together people from the Armed Forces community and the civilian community in the local area.
Events can be modest and do not need to cost a lot to run. It might be something like having tea and cake following a remembrance event or arranging a venue for people in the community to come together and share a lunch.
The trust expects to award between 4,000 and 5,000 small grants of up to £500 each, which are to be used to purchase up to 10 silhouettes of Tommies as part of their remembrance event. Applications will be accepted from 1 and 30 June 2018.
