Attend Help for Heroes’ Creative Force Scotland Exhibition Launch Event

The captaindavidseathmemorialfund raises money as a means to support over eight hundred personnel, veterans and their families across Scotland, through helpforheroes’ Fellowship Programme. One way in which funds have been used is to run regular arttherapy workshops and the artwork, pottery, poetry and photography produced will showcase at Edinburgh Napier University’s historic Craiglockhart Campus, from 19-22 November 2019.
