A little while ago my tutor asked if we had any suggestions for a house charity, I put forward FCT as a suggestion. A couple of weeks ago I was told that it had been chosen as our house charity! As it was my suggestion we (my tutor group) decided that we would do the first fundraiser today. As a lot of people do bake sales at school we decided that we wanted to have a lucky dip (all the prizes were sweets) and also sell chocolate. And it was a massive success! We sold out of chocolate in the first half an hour and by the end of lunchtime our lucky dip was also sold out. Although it took a while two boys from my tutor (Harry and Reuben who helped with everything!) counted up all of the money and found out that we managed to raise £44.40 (double the price that we spent on sweets and chocolate)!
I have attached a few pictures of the stall as I thought you might want to see some of it

Big Game Hunters has a history of working with the Force’s Children’s Trust. We have previously given away one of their trampolines four years ago and they are very impressed with the charity and the spirit of the work it does.

Big Game Hunters is a family run company that offer trampolines and games. It is one of their key values that playing outdoors is the best for kids because it encourages them to get some exercise that they couldn’t while sitting indoors! They have donated an 8ft Skyhigh Trampoline and Enclosure to two FCT children.

Skyhigh is a brand owned by Big Game Hunters and they have a large range of trampolines in round, rectangular and oval available in a variety of different sizes. You can take a look here.

A few of the FCT children who attended the Christmas Party braved the elements on the Sunday morning to receive presents from the Pipe Hitters.

All of the Pipe Hitters are Ex Forces and have served together, the club has been formed for a couple of years and are constantly doing charity fund raising money for forces charities.

Anthony and two others are based in Middlesex, Berkshire and Surrey, the others riders made their way from  Essex on brisk and cold Sunday morning.  The presents the riders gave to the children, were donated by friends and work colleagues.

Denny Wise founded the Forces Childrens Trust twelve years ago and is currently preparing some of the children to travel to Nepal next year to help out children there. Richard Wyeth has been speaking to Denny to find out more about the charity…


The Civilian Services Contingent (CSC) parades every year to form part of the hollow rectangle around the Cenotaph; they form up on the Richmond Terrace side of Whitehall alongside the Army group, opposite the RAF.

The CSC comprises of 186 uniformed volunteers from the Police, Fire & Prison Services along with members of the St John Ambulance, British Red Cross and Ambulance Associations.

The Command of the CSC falls on a rotational basis to either the CFOA (Chief Fire Officers Association) or NPCC (National Police Chiefs Council) who nominate an officer of Chief Fire Officer Grade or Chief Constable. Either of these rank holders have credence & credibility with the rank and file members on parade having served in an operational environment. This year the command role is assumed by Chief Fire Officer David Etheridge OBE of Oxfordshire Fire & Rescue Service.


The CSC is split into two detachments of 90 each, each detachment being led by representatives of either the Fire & Rescue Service or the Police, holding either Deputy or Assistant Chief Fire Officer or Chief Superintendent or Superintendent rank.

Prior to taking their place on Whitehall the CSC gathered on the Saturday evening prior to Remembrance Sunday received a full briefing as to what is expected of them, this was the first time that they had come together, assembling as they have from all over the UK of GB and this year the Channel Islands and Gibraltar.

After the briefing a presentation was made to Denny Wise Founder of the Forces Children's Trust. A £300.00 cheque from the photographer Peter Anderson plus collections and sales making a grand total of £1077.84 this amount was presented by Stewart Leach MBE, a retired member of the Royal Military Police and former member of the Prison Service who managed the CSC event along with his colleagues from DCMS MoD and the RBL. This ensures that the diverse and complicated parade is drawn together each year reflecting the solemnity of the event.
