Charity The Not Forgotten

The Not Forgotten is an incredible charity set up in 1920 by a visiting America Soprano Marta Cunningham.

Whilst she was visiting a Military of Pensions hospital she discovered it was full of injured soldiers from the First Wold War who felt that the country had turned their backs on them.  Movingly, a soldier said to her “We don’t want no charity Miss, we are forgotten by everybody and we’d better stop so.”

The charity continues to support over 10,000 beneficiaries every year, through social activities, respite and challenge holidays which improve physical and mental health, combat isolation, and promote a sense of community and camaraderie amongst the veteran community.

They support any serving man or woman who is wounded, injured or sick and any veteran with a disability, illness or infirmity; whatever the cause and whenever it arose. Any serving or former member of The Royal Navy, The Royal Marines, The British Army, The Royal Air Force and The Merchant Navy, both Regular and Reserve Forces, may be eligible for their help.

From respite holidays to Royal parties, canoeing to concerts, and provision of TVs and tablets to veterans isolated at home, The Not Forgotten’s small team provides an incredible variety and breadth of support to veterans and service personnel and we are proud to be associated with them.  Please visit their website to find out more, and if you are able, do donate by hitting the button below.
