Is a symbol of national conscience, crafted with care and respect from the handle of a stretcher – symbolising pride, hope, courage and suffering. Most importantly, it is a message of gratitude from those who wish to support the brave men and women of our armed forces who regularly risk their lives so that we may live with freedom of choice, peace and safety.
Started from the heart, not for money, the Baton is a true charity managed totally by volunteers and run from a Shop in Honiton, Devon, the “Home of The Baton” with the invaluable support of marvellous people who donate time and services.
Please read the message, if you care about the people we do and agree with us, then join us and many others in our desire to be loyal to those who loyally serve. For full details on what we hope to achieve please see Our Mission page.
The primary aim of the Baton is to keep the message alive! not necessarily to raise funds, however, many special people in this country have raised money for us and so grants have already been handed out.
Provision have been made for any money raised to be distributed by Baton Donations.
We would welcome any suggestions for where such grants could be made, details on how you can contact us are here.
Please have a look at the events and where possible support the fantastic commitment of many carrying the Baton in various ways to show their support and pride, no journey is too short.
