Our Gibraltar Veterans Heritage Project Sponsors

We would like to say a huge thanks to our fantastic partners and funders who are supporting our team and making this trip possible including The Not Forgotten, the UK based Friends of Gibraltar Heritage Society, Greenwich Hospital, Rebecca Day 360° and Blands Travel.

David Cowley, Chairman of The Not Forgotten says;

"The Not Forgotten are excited to be able to support the Alabarè on this incredible adventure as they bring back to life an important piece of the Armed Forces history. It is an honour to be able to play a role in giving veterans this opportunity to support a cause that they hold true passion for."


Len Goss, Marketing & Engagement Director for the Friends of Gibraltar says;

“We are delighted to have contributed and collaborated with Alabare, GHT and our other partners on this exciting project. Together, we will be giving the veterans a valuable confidence and skills building experience to help them move forward with their lives. We wish them every success with their future. We will also be helping to preserve and promote these historical, iconic military items as part of Gibraltar’s rich heritage.”


Celia Watson, Charity Manager at Greenwich Hospital says;

“We are delighted to be able to support some of our naval and marine veterans to take part in this worthwhile project alongside our wider support for Alabare.  This is a great opportunity to build skills, confidence and camaraderie among military veterans. The initiative gives a valuable opportunity for those in the military to remember and acknowledge those who have served before them in addition to contributing to the restoration of Gibraltar’s history.”
