A Big Thank You to the Uniformed Civilian Services

The WEA was humbled to be selected as the charity of the year by the uniformed civilian services who, alongside the Armed Forces, formed part of the honour guard at the national act of remembrance held at the Cenotaph last Sunday. In addition to the Royal Navy and Royal Marine communities, the WEA supports the Royal Fleet Auxiliary community and the latter form part of the uniformed civilian services contingent. Our CEO, Commodore Stuart Wright, was honoured to be invited to the contingent’s pre-Cenotaph event where he was privileged to receive a hugely generous donation from the contingent and their official photographer, Peter Anderson. Whilst attention is rightly focused at remembrance weekend events on members of the Armed Forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice, our CEO acknowledged those from the uniformed civilian services who have also laid down their lives in the line of duty, including one each from the police and fire brigade this year. We are immensely grateful to the uniformed civilian services, not just for the very kind donation they have made to our charity but for what they do in the line of duty on behalf of the public and the nation.
