Armed Forces Day
What is it?
Armed Forces Day is a day to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community.
Mesothelioma UK holds an event to celebrate our veterans with mesothelioma and to raise awareness of mesothelioma among members of our Armed Forces.
In 2019 we were lucky enough to be able to attend the National Event in Salisbury but since the covid-19 pandemic, we have been holding virtual events instead
