A King’s Lynn armed forces charity celebrated St David’s Day this week.

Despite the heavy rain, passers-by stopped to have a look at a military display which was held outside the Bridge for Heroes contact centre.

Soldiers from The Welsh Cavalry, the 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards, were on hand to talk to visitors and show them around the contact centre.

Sergeant Owain Rhys-Davis, from the regiment, said: “We have had a massive amount of support and people have had a sit in the tanks, even though they were wet.

“I think it’s important to be here on St David’s Day – it’s all about supporting the community.”

The centre in South Clough Lane supports personnel and families from all British Armed Services.

Bridge for Heroes is a charity supported by West Norfolk Mayor, Colin Manning, who attended the event on Tuesday.

He said: “I think it’s great what the charity does, I am delighted to be here.”
