AJM Healthcare marked King Charles III’s first National Service of Remembrance as monarch, on Sunday, 13th November 2022, by providing 130 wheelchairs on loan to servicemen and women for the Remembrance Day Parade.
The National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph in Whitehall is held every year on Remembrance Sunday at 11.00am. It ensures that we never forget those who have sacrificed themselves for our nation. On this day, we come together as a country to honour all of those who have given their lives in war and show our appreciation for the freedom and way of life that we enjoy today.
It is an important day for veterans, serving members of the miliary and their families. The wheelchairs will be a great help to those that need them, and serve as a reminder of the important role we must all play in supporting those who have sacrificed so much for Britain and the Commonwealth.
Wheelchairs were also available at the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday, 12th November.
Guy Eatherington, AJM’s customer relations director, said, “It was a privilege to be able to support our veterans on Remembrance Sunday – it was truly moving. We will never forget the sacrifices they have made for us and our country.”
This act of kindness was especially poignant given that the wheelchairs have been bought especially for this occasion. The wheelchairs were available from the AJM Healthcare gazebo at Horse Guards Parade Ground, with AJM Healthcare staff on hand to adjust the wheelchairs for comfort.
David Wales-Durrans, NHS Hertfordshire Wheelchair Service Operations Manager said, “As a former WO2 (SSM) it is my utmost pleasure and honour that AJM are involved in providing support for this worthy cause.”
The wheelchairs will now go towards bolstering NHS wheelchair provision, at no additional cost to our National Health Service.
