Communities across South Yorkshire are being encouraged to apply for funding to hold events for Armed Forces Day held in honour of our service personnel past and present.
Armed Forces Day, held this year on Saturday, June 29, has been marked annually with events throughout the UK since its launch in 2009.
Funding ranging from just a few hundred pounds up to £10,000 per application is available from the Ministry of Defence for tea parties, parades, big band concerts, military re-enactments and demonstrations.
Match funding must be provided equivalent to the value of the application.
