The BFF Panto Bus is delighted to have received a £15,000 grant from the Veterans’ Foundation. The money will help towards the cost of the 2024 Christmas tour which will entertain British forces families at more than 50 military bases across the UK and overseas.

This is the tenth anniversary of the BFF Panto Bus which has brought joy to tens of thousands of people within the British military community, both young and old – particularly where families have been separated by operational deployment at Christmas.

“The Veterans' Foundation has been set up to help fund charities and other charitable organisations that are helping serving and former members of the Armed Forces, and their dependants, who are in need,” said Veterans’ Foundation founder, Major General David Shaw.

“The Veterans' Foundation raises its money through the Veterans’ Lottery and donations. Since inception in July 2016, it has given over £11 million through over 600 grants to over 300 unique organisations, many of them small to medium-sized and very worthwhile charities, which are helping members of the Armed Forces community who are in need. Forecasts indicate the Veterans’ Foundation will make grants totalling £4.4 million this financial year.”

He added: “We are grateful for the public’s support of the Veterans’ Foundation and its Veterans’ Lottery, and we encourage you to spread the word.”
