Armley’s salute to the Armed Forces Fun Day

Armley Moor is set to celebrate the country’s armed forces when it hosts a special festival later this month.

Community Central CIC, a not-for-profit company based in Leeds, will be hosting Armley’s Salute to the Armed Forces Fun Day Festival after being the only official not for profit organisation in Leeds to receive approval to run an event from the Ministry of Defence (MOD).

The event is on Saturday, June 24, from 10am-6pm on Armley Moor, off Town Street. All funds raised will go towards supporting and creating programmes that will empower people and communities.

There will be a number of attractions, games, rides for all ages including bouncy castles, electronic bull rides, a military style assault course and a live DJ. There will also be activities provided by Oxygen Freejumping and a live WWE-style wrestling show hosted by 4th Generation Wrestling.

Community Central’s Aron Thomas said the event is a chance for people in West Leeds to come together and show their support for the men and woman of the Armed Forces, and to form and develop a stronger sense of community. He said:

“We are extremely excited about the event. It is a tremendous opportunity to show support for our Armed Forces Members and the community. We always strive to make it a memorable experience for all our visitors, and introduce Armley’s wonderful community to the rest of Leeds.”

A free coach service is running from Bramley and Kirkstall to help make the event more inclusive to the wider community with the help of small grant funds and local area council members.

If you would like to book a stall at the event, e-mail info@communitycentral.co.uk or call 07930237962 or send a message to Community Central’s Facebook page.
