This year saw the 25th Anniversary of Gulf War 1. In order to pay its respects the NGVFA organised a parade and service of commemoration on Tuesday 22nd March at the Royal Arthur memorial, Butlins, Skegness. Following a short parade, a service and prayers, a wreath was laid by the wife of a Gulf veteran.
We then also had a fabulous gala evening - a black tie dinner followed by evening entertainment including a fabulous big band.
This year, our 17th, was another successful Respite Break - 237 people, with 11% of the attendees being there for the first time.
One of the key aims of our Respite Break, in addition to providing members and families with a well deserved break, is to provide some "Face to Face" information and support.

In order for us to apply for funding from the forces charities (ABF The Soldiers Charity, RAF Benevolent Fund and Poppyscotland) they require information on the income and expenditure that relates to the veteran applying for funding who cannot afford to pay for themselves. For the past 4 years we have been asked to obtain this information by the use of the expenditure form shown above.
This form is not designed to catch anyone out or stop them obtaining funding to attend the respite break. If the form is not completed and submitted by us this can result in either no funding or a reduction of funding we receive from these sources. Please note that the expenditure form is not used or sent to any other organisation by the NGVFA.
However if you do have any queries regarding the expenditure form when you apply to attend 2017 respite please contact the office to discuss.
If you have any queries about the respite break, the dates & location, or the application forms for next year, please contact us.Back to the top
