Armed Forces Day 2019 – 28th June
St Jude’s celebrated Armed Forces Day on Friday 28th June, with our children arriving in the morning dressed in either Military uniforms, Club uniforms, or Red, White and Blue clothing. They all looked fantastic as did the staff who also joined in.
The children enjoyed lunch in a street-party decorated hall chatting with their friends and admiring each other’s outfits!
We were lucky enough to have a number of military parents who kindly came in and spoke with the children about their various roles within the services. These included a Royal Navy Commanding Officer, a Royal Navy helicopter pilot, Royal Marine band members and Army personnel amongst others. All of whom had the children gripped with their interesting and sometimes funny stories of their time serving our country.
