ABF The Soldiers' Charity

We are The Soldiers’ Charity. We give lifetime support to serving and retired soldiers and their families. They risk so much for us, but for them, it’s just doing their job. In return, we provide financial assistance when they are in real need. That’s what we’ve been here to offer for 70 years.

Join our #FundraisingArmy today by enrolling into the 2016 Brighton Marathon. Register for £25 and be part of our elite Fundraising Army. Run 26.2 miles through the seaside city of Brighton this April and raise money to support our soldiers and veterans in the process. To find out more email us at events@soldierscharity.org

Today at 11am, the nation fell silent for two minutes as offices, schools, shops and town squares across the country stopped to remember the moment when the guns of WWI finally stopped, bringing an end to four years of war on 11th November 1918.

It is also a chance to reflect on, and remember the sacrifices that have been made in the decades following the two World Wars, from the Falklands to the Gulf, and to Britain's more recent involvement in Afghanistan.

Today, we remember them all.
