12th November 2019

GCN NETWORKING: WORS - 'War Out Resch in Schools' - Helped to bring to life Christmas Carols and 'End of Soldiering On' WW1 Curriculum.

GCN Volunteer Roy was in Full WW1 Uniform and both he and GCN Founder, Chris Auker-Howlett, supported the pupils acting and singing, dressed in our W.O.R.S. - WW1 Uniform.

We also supplied WW1 Wall Art, Cam Nets, Sand Bags filled with VHS tape to assit with the decoration of the Hall. It was great to be invited back to Milestonee to add to thier Event as most of the pupils had their families there. We assisted this event for free as its Aims mirror GCN's own: of bringing people together for the betterment of all. 'Better Together'.
