Volunteers Needed to help set up and dismantle our stall

Salute To The 40’s Weekend, Chatham Dockyard
September 17th & 18th 2016

Can you help?

This is a great weekend and The British Evacuees Association always has a great stand and we make a nice pot of money for The Memorial Funds from this weekend.

Unfortunately due to family commitments Julie Underhay, our usual organiser, is unable to attend this years event. We are looking for some very kind people whom can help to set up on Friday 16th September from 10am and also to help breakdown and put the stock away on the Sunday 18th September from about 4pm. Julie is happy to organise all the paperwork etc leading up to the event and then hand over stock and paperwork to the willing volunteers. You do not have to be at the event for both days as we always have plenty of help on the stand – just need to be able to assist with the set up and breakdown of the stall.

For more information please call Julie Underhay on 01474 855524 (daytime) or 01474 853503 evenings


As usual 48 of our members proudly took part in the Cenotaph Parade in London on 8th November 2015
