A special Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey to celebrate 100 years of Blind Veterans UK.

Westminster Abbey service

A special Service of Thanksgiving was held on 6th October 2015 at Westminster Abbey to celebrate the charity's centenary.

The event provided a special opportunity to celebrate the Blind Veterans UK's many achievements over the past 100 years, and the achievements of the many blind veterans the charity has supported.

The service was conducted by the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall with the Choir of Westminster Abbey providing the music. There was also a performance from Welsh classical Soprano Gwawr Edwards and readings from Blind Veterans UK supporters Barbara Windsor and David Dimbleby.

Over 1,700 people attended including over 400 veterans who have behelped by the charity and were joined by family, friends, staff and supporters of Blind Veterans UK.

A DVD of the service is available to buy on the Blind Veterans UK online shop.
