VC GETS A NEW PATRON!
We are very proud to welcome our new Patron, Mrs Penny Howard-Bates.
Penny has been a keen supporter of the charity since we were founded in 2008. Daughter of the legendary Major John Howard DSO Croix de Guerre, who led the operation at Pegasus Bridge on D-Day, Penny has done a great deal to support the Veterans who served alongside her father.
Her book, The Pegasus Diaries - a compilation of her father's diaries and her own writing about his extraordinary life, was published in 2006 and a limited edition was commissioned for the charity in 2008.
We are delighted that Penny has agreed to join the 'VC family'.
