James Sunderland attended the virtual launch event of the Armed Forces Veterans’ Hub run by the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service on Saturday.
The Veterans’ Hib offers a place for veterans to come together, listen to high profile speakers and meet organisations who can provide them with advice or support them and meet each other.
“My thanks to everyone involved in getting this initiative off the ground and I look forward to being able to attend these.
“This is an incredibly important initiative that is close to my heart after serving in HM Armed Forces for 26 years. Joining forces with the Fire Authority to launch the Armed Forces Veterans’ Hub in Royal Berkshire is very exciting as I hope it can offer a place for our County’s veterans to come together and share experiences, as well as offer an environment for sharing crucial services that help our veterans and their families.”
The Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service will be launching these Hubs across Berkshire, but in the meantime will run them virtually.
