Cathedral to host Norwich service for veterans 

Outside the Wire, the service for veterans run by the Matthew Project, is holding a day of reflection at St John's Cathedral in Norwich.

The transition from serving in the UK’s Armed Forces to civilian life presents multiple challenges. With little support on the ‘outside’, veterans who are already struggling with mental ill health or PTSD often turn to drugs and alcohol in order to cope. With a pandemic and cost of living rises there is an even bigger problem
Outside The Wire is a specialist veteran service from The Matthew Project, and offers a lifeline for Armed Forces veterans, current serving personnel and their families, across East Anglia. It is run solely by veterans
From 2-3pm on Sunday June 26, Outside The Wire is hosting a Veteran Service of Reflection at St John the Baptist Cathedral, Norwich. The service is being held to say thank you to veterans that have served in HM Forces, and to offer them the opportunity to reflect on their time in serving alongside those they served with
Lord Richard Dannatt retired senior British Army officer, member of the House of Lords and Chief of the General Staff (head of the Army) from 2006 to 2009, will be in attendance. There will also be uniformed representation from the Army, RAF and Navy and a bugler for the last post. The service will be live streamed into care homes across the county and is expected to be well attended
