Why are donations so vital?


The Charity’s activities are only possible due to donations and the subscriptions from its Friends scheme, supported by partnership working with, and grant funding from, other organisations.

This web site is just one expense which can be seen by everyone, and it plays a vital role as the Charity’s online shop window via its regularly updated news of the activities undertaken – but many of these activities have costs, for example:

  • Covering the costs which enable the Charity to develop special commemorative events and install plaques and information boards
  • Covering some or all of the expenses involved when getting veterans and carers to special events
  • Covering the expenses of guest contributors such as historian speakers – that’s the least we can do if they’ll take part in an event or other initiative
  • Owning and storing the equipment needed for presentations and other events, as this is more cost-effective than always having to hire these items
  • Producing display and other promotional material – there’s no point in doing what we do unless we can also publicise all this so as to engage wider audiences
  • Turning our archive and knowledge into learning resources – including videos for online access – by digitising existing or acquired interviews and archive material
  • Instigating ever-more links between appropriate organisations, veterans associations, learning institutions and local communities in the countries in which we operate
  • Improving and expanding this web site as the Charity’s resource platform and also as the ‘shop window’ for fundraising and promotion

The continuation of activities such as those is why the Charity needs ongoing income, so please do consider a donation, or subscribing as a Friend of the Charity (see below) – so that we can cover the basic month-to-month costs while also developing new initiatives.
