Following on from the success of our poignant acts of Remembrance last year and Poppies To Paddington in 2020, we are making plans for Routes of Remembrance 2023. Communities across the globe are getting involved in sending and transporting wreaths and tributes which will visit poignant and important landmarks and locations connected with honouring those who have served.
Routes of Remembrance 2023 will connect communities, countries, organisations and hundreds of people in special and unique acts of Remembrance. If you would like to be involved, please contact us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org

The Falklands Challenge 2024
Returning for a third successive year, The Falklands Challenge has become a hugely poignant and very popular event which honours those who served in the South Atlantic in 1982.
The 10-mile 'yomp' follows a route along the South West Coast Path from Instow Beach to RMB Chivenor, taking in stunning views and passing through Yelland, Fremington, Bickington, Barnstaple and Heanton before finishing at the memorial garden at RMB Chivenor.
All participants receive a bespoke commemorative medal and those who choose to fundraise and exceed £50, will also receive a free VC Hoodie as a thank you.
Open to all ages and for those unable to make it to North Devon for the live event, there is a virtual option too!
