About the Project

This May a team of veterans are travelling to Gibraltar to help renovate Lord Airey’s Battery, an iconic element of Gibraltar’s heritage which was built by British troops in 1891 and saw service throughout both World Wars. Since decommissioned in 1976, the gun has fallen into disrepair and is now a subject of a renovation project spearheaded by military historian Pete Jackson, Trustee of the Gibraltar Heritage Trust.

Five veterans who have struggled and faced homelessness since leaving the Armed Forces and who have each benefited from the support of Alabaré's veterans' teams, will be helping to restore the gun as part of a week-long project.

The trip co-insides with the epic efforts of our cyclists as they seek to conquer our Race to the Sun which you can read more about here.

Meet the Team

Our veterans taking part in the Gibraltar Heritage project come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences.  The team are made up of a mix of clients who have been previously homeless or at risk of being homeless, and staff.  Between them, they represent all four military services.  Each is looking forward to the opportunity to work together as a team, and help with the restoration of this iconic piece of military, and Gibraltar, heritage.
