from June communities will be able to apply for fully funded grants to purchase Silhouettes to hold their own remembrance event, thanks to a new programme from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.
With the centenary of the end of World War One approaching, communities across the United Kingdom are thinking about how they can commemorate and bring people together to remember. This programme will allow communities to access silhouettes for benches and chairs free of charge. These silhouettes can be placed within community halls, places of worship and places of education, bringing to mind those who went to war and did not return.
You can apply for an award to purchase up to 10 silhouettes. As part of the award, your organisation will need to hold a self-funded event to bring your local community together.
Applications are open between 01 and 30 June 2018.
