Welcome to the AVFW
We are a charity for current and ex-service men and women that provides welfare and support for members in times of need.
Throughout each year we arrange pilgrimages to war graves, memorials, commemorative events and other social activities.
We promote the advancement of education through presentations in schools from our members regarding WWII and other world conflicts. This gives the children a chance to interact with our veterans on a one-to-one basis.
Normandy Veterans 70th Anniversary Pilgrimage
The Normandy Veterans Group urgently need support to help our surviving D-Day veterans (all mostly in their 90's) attend their final pilgrimage to the D-Day beaches of Normandy, France next year (2014) on the 70th Anniversary. (6th June, 1944-2014).
This closes a chapter in their lives and in living history. These aging gentlemen need all the help and support they can get to visit the war graves and memorials for the last time and pay their respects to all those comrades they left behind.
Please honour and support these veterans
