Lest We Forget 2

Following on from yesterday's piece about the launch of Mackenzie Thorpe's Lest We Forget, I'm really excited at the prospect of working with veterans' care provider Erskine.

They are a Scottish based charity and have a total of 137 beds dedicated to ex-Service personnel with dementia including the Erskine Park Home, a 40 bed specialist dementia home.  Erskine operate five care homes with a mostly male population. We are starting the project with them shortly and final details on the groups and evaluation will be announced soon.

You can sign up for e-newsletters on our website to keep up to date with the very latest developments.

Another Veterans related item to flag up is the Chelsea Auto Legends on Sunday 2nd September

CEO of the event,  Max Wakefield is a supporter of the Sporting Memories Network. Chelsea Auto Legends takes place in the grounds of The Royal Hospital, Chelsea. The event raises funds for its chosen charities, Walking with the Wounded and the Chelsea Pensioners and has an impressive list of supporters from the world of motorsport.

I'm going along to CAL with my fellow founding director Chris Wilkins. During the day we will have roving microphones capturing memories from fans and stars to contribute to Replay Motorsport.

Rumour has it summer is finally on its way, so hopefully see you there!
