The Baton is a symbol of national conscience
“The Baton is a symbol of national conscience, crafted with care and respect from the handle of a stretcher – symbolising pride, hope, courage and suffering.
Primarily set up for awareness it carries a message of gratitude from those who wish to support the brave men and women of our armed forces who have and do risk their lives so that we may live with freedom of choice, peace and safety.
Any funds donated are used for immediate (often emergency) support and to assist individuals striving to improve their personal situation, the history of this can be seen on our Welfare Support page – no wages are paid and minimal expenses taken just ordinary people doing what they can simply because they care.
The Baton Family – there for serving, former serving, their families and often those who feel forgotten.”
