How funding helps

Why I joined Bury Veterans Association

Robert Walsh RAF - 1941-1946

I have been a member of the association for just over 12 months, upon joining I was made very welcome and have made quite a few new friends. 

The members were genuinely interested in getting to know about me and my time in the RAF. 

In joining the association I have been on several trips to places I would not have been able to go on my own. 

I feel if I need any help or support from anyone the veterans association would be there for me. 


We have received funding from the following organisations: 

  • Through forever Manchester we have received funding from Auto trader community fund and 247 people fund (247 car finance).
  • Greggs Foundation community fund.
  • The pitch funding.
  • Ambition 4 Ageing.


So far the funding has paid for the following trips:

  • International Birmingham Tattoo.
  • National Memorial Arboretum.
  • Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
  • National Royal Navy Museum.
  • RAF Cosford Airshow.
  • Yorkshire Wartime Experience.
  • Eden Camp.

See pictures below from some of our adventures.
