Salute to Hero's 2019
Armed Forces Veterans from across the borough descended on The Ex Servicemen’s club this past Friday evening as EDs, the Wigan based ex forces housing and family support provider hosted “A Salute To Heroes.” The concert starring two of Wigan’s brightest musical talents our very own Ex Forces Ambassador Olivia Garcia and Scott Chapman was created by Eds in 2017.
Amongst the audience was Guests of Honour The Mayor of Wigan, RBL Wigan along with dozens of former serving personnel from across the borough. The audience were thoroughly entertained with two outstanding performances from Olivia and Scott which included a stunning duet.
We would also like to thank Kieran White and Jordan Grice from Our Journey their amazing effort to raise funds for Veterans suffering with PTSD. They are currently marching the hardest National Trail in the UK Starting at Edale finishing in Scotland it usually takes between 16-19 days and their aim is to complete it in 7-10 days – 286 Miles – 25Kg weight.
