VETERANS SOCIAL SESSIONS
Burnley cricket club
EVERY thursday, 1:00PM - 3:00PM
When service personnel leave the Armed Forces, one of the biggest things they often miss is the sense of belonging. The camaraderie and laughter, the banter – it’s not something that is easily replicated in civilian life.
That’s why we’ve set up our weekly social sessions for veterans,
It gives ex-service personnel in the East Lancashire area the opportunity to connect with others who have served, make new friends and enjoy themselves with people that have shared similar experiences.
Our weekly social sessions offer free refreshments and a wide variety of activities ranging from: quizzes, dominoes, card games, music and indoor bowls
We also have regular guests from other Charities and Organisations that may help with any queries or provide you with new and already existing Community news.
For veterans that need it, our sessions also provide access to health initiatives and support to find employment. Sessions are regularly attended by representatives from the Veterans Welfare Service and the Lancashire NHS Trust, amongst many other organisations.
“It’s a chance for us all to come together again and have the banter that we’re used to that other people might not necessarily get.”
Harry – 2nd Battalion Royal Irish Rangers
“I’ve made some good pals since coming here, it’s another sense of belonging. A lot of us miss that from when we were squaddies.”
Dave – Royal Engineers
