A century on from World War One, Veterans from Stoll honour all those who have Served in the Armed Forces…

At 11.00 on Friday 11th November Stoll Veterans gathered for a short service of remembrance and unveiled a new memorial at Stoll Mansions in Fulham. The memorial marked Stoll’s centenary year – the organisation has provided 100 years of housing and support for the nation’s ex-Service men and women since 1916. On Remembrance Sunday Stoll Veterans joined hundreds of other Veterans to proudly march past the Cenotaph in central London.

To coincide with Remembrance Sunday, Stoll, the leading provider of supported housing for Veteranslaunched a videoshowing the support vulnerable Veterans receive. Veteran Ian Camps who features in the video, said: “Stoll provided me with a flat in west London and made sure I had the support I needed at the time to get back on my feet. I now have a place I can call home; I have my sail and rudder back and a life to look forward to. I am one of the lucky ones.”

Speaking of the Parade and Stoll’s Centenary, Ed Tytherleigh Stoll’s Chief Executive said: “The cenotaph parade is incredibly important in ensuring we remember those who have Served the country and those who have fallen during conflict. It gives us the chance to stop and reflect on the huge sacrifice those individuals have made. Today, just as Stoll did 100 years ago, we are proud to provide housing and support to Veterans in the greatest need.”

As part of its Centenary celebration Stoll is also holding a series of fundraising events including a Christmas Carol Concert on the 8th December which will be attended by Stoll’s Patron, Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex, Veterans and local people.
