Save the BAFCV!
The Bolton Armed Forces Centre for Veterans was set up by Scott Hawtrey and his partner Cait and is completely funded from their own pockets but they are now in a severe financial crisis, even though they have not paid themselves a wage for 2 years. The Centre provides help and assistance to many of our Veterans in the area, including (but not limited to) housing and financial advice or just providing a sympathetic ear to anyone that needs it with a brew! They are receiving referrals from, not only the local Social services but the police as well and yet Bolton City Council have not provided any grants or funding of any type and this is unacceptable. It has got to the stage now where the Centre may have to close, leaving many vulnerable ex-forces personnel without anywhere to go. We need to get this petition made very public in the hope that this dire situation can be rectified and the Bolton Armed Forces Centre for Veterans to be saved!
