Armed Forces Day Football Festival - 19th June

Last year, Lothians Veterans Centre (LVC) ran a very successful football tournament.

The morning had over 440 kids attending. In the afternoon it got slightly more serious and competitive with fourteen (adult) teams displaying their skills and competitive nature.

Several local Community health & wellbeing organisations – “Places for People” & “Midlothian and East Lothian Drug and Alcohol Partnership” (MELDAP) “Alive & Kicking” participated during the event and the majority of teams’ had a past or present Armed Forces connection – all feedback was extremal positive.

There were 1000+ footballers, spectators, family and friends during the day with local eateries and stalls present to create a family fun day for all!

They are running the event again this year  LVC Armed Forces Day Football festival on Sunday 19th June 2016 at Dalkeith Thistle FC stadium.

This year’s event will keep to 2015’s format.  Once again, the morning’s football will consist of Children & Youth teams, followed by the Main Event in the afternoon!

They would like to send an open (FREE) invitation to all organisations’ who may benefit from attending an event like this and the audience it captures.  Their aim is to create stronger links and awareness for all within the local Community.

Please Steven should you be interested or have any questions in relation to the event!
