EAST YORKS: Beverley Armed Forces Day has been given a £500 funding boost after Beverley Lions agreed to contribute.
The event, which will be held in the town centre on Sunday, July 7, relies on volunteers.
Last year, it had been feared the day would be neglected in the shadow of events such as the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Torch Relay. But businesses and the Lions stepped in to underwrite the costs and the same thing is happening this year.
The result of that community spirit is that Beverley Armed Forces Day has a family- friendly atmosphere.
