Battling On was established to support members of the British Armed Forces who struggle to readjust to civilian life
The courage and devotion of our forces is recognised without doubt, however, it has also been recognised that some service personnel find it difficult to settle back into civilian life after leaving the forces.
Battling On at Tatton Park Flower Show
In July, several Battling On staff went to Manchester to attend the Tatton Park Flower Show. Kenny Raybould, our master Horticulturalist, had put together designs for the Fleurs de Villes portion of the show. He put together a Tamar landgirl, Barbara, and she went on a grand trip to the north!
This three-part video series documents Barbara's arrival to Merryhue farm, all the way up to show day! We hope you enjoy the journey as much as we did.
