One of our supporters Sarah shared this recently on our Facebook page:
"This is my 15yr old son Jack, he has had to do a speech towards his GCSE grade for English Language. He choose to do one about homeless veterans, about how they should be better looked after by the government. Jack currently is an air cadet for the RAF Brighton and has a keen interest in joining to do aeroplane engineering of which he will make his application December/January this year.
I hope this puts a smile on peoples faces and lets them know that they are thought about and cared about by the younger generation xx."
