In early 2020, your Local Medical Committee signed up to become an ambassador for the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC) to support our Armed Forces personnel and their families. As ex-Royal Air Force service personnel, Michael Wright and I personally know how important, and a privilege it is, to feel the support of members of the public from our communities and across the nation.
This year’s Armed Forces Day will take on Saturday 27th June 2020 with limited events across the nation hampered by COVID-19 pandemic, as our NHS colleagues continue to fight a different kind of battlefront. Details of planned events taking place can be located here. Please contact the individual event organisers, using the contact details provided, for further information on specific events.
The LMC is inviting practices to consider showing your support for our Armed Forces in the lead up to Armed Forces Day on Saturday 27th June 2020.
We are encouraging practices to help promote and celebrate this high-profile event within your teams and if you wish, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your displays and photographs for a chance to win a prize! The best display or promotion of Armed Forces Day will win a fantastic M&S hamper for their practice. Here is a link to Armed Forces Day resources toolkit to get those creative juices going.
We look forward to receiving your photo’s celebrating this day.
