Veterans Breakfast Club

We are delighted to announce we are launching a brand new military veterans breakfast club to be held in Accrington.

Working in partnership with Veterans in the Community (VIC) we are inviting any veterans to attend the first breakfast club being held on Wednesday 26th Jan 9:30am- 11am at The Carers Link Café, 54-56 Blackburn Rd, Accrington, BB5 1LE. We will be holding the event on the last Wednesday of every month with the view to increasing the regularity if they are a success.

Veterans will be able to get a bacon, sausage or egg butty and a brew for £3.

The events will be a chance to speak to other local veterans and supporting agencies. We will also use the breakfast club as way of speaking to people about what other related provision they would like to see in the area.

Project manager Lee Walsh explains ‘this will be our first attempt at engaging with local veterans and we are excited to get things off the ground, I’m hopeful the project can develop into something bigger and we will be able to help local people and provide them with a lot of opportunities to engage in their local community.

As we start to plan what the project would look like and what events will be involved we would like to hear the thoughts of veterans to help us develop our offer. We invite you to fill out the form below or contact us on 01254 475013 or lee.walsh@stanleytrust.co.uk
