We help members with information about pensions, savings and tax issues, through signposting.  When required, we direct widows to support agencies such as SSAFA, RBL and Regimental Associations, and we have a thriving private Facebook page where information and support is available.  There are usually members who can answer questions because they have faced similar issues in the past, and are willing to pass on helpful information and experience.

Twice a year we host respite weekends.  Members have the opportunity to join us for a subsidised weekend, in a hotel, or, at Amport House, courtesy of the Army Chaplain’s Department; we have a drinks reception and a ‘dress up’ dinner in the evening, because members tell us they miss putting on the ‘Glad Rags’. These respite weekends are attached to the AGM and the annual visit to the National Memorial Arboretum.

We spend a third weekend, Remembrance, in London and we attend the Festival of Remembrance on the Saturday.  On the Sunday we join with the Navy, Air Force and War Widows to march past the Cenotaph where we lay a wreath in memory of our late husbands.
