On Monday the 23rd of October, former Sacred Heart pupil, Aiofe Gilligan, and current Year 5 pupil, Connor Simeon, had the honour of meeting Prince Harry at the Veterans UK base in Norcross.
As children of families who work for Veterans UK, the two were present for Prince Harry’s visit in honour ofthe 25th anniversary of Veterans UK’s 24-hour helpline service. The helpline receives hundreds of calls every day and provides support for ex-servicemen and women, and their families.
During his visit Prince Harry met management, staff, and children before unveiling a commemorative plaque to mark the anniversary. He told onlookers and the staff on-site “Happy anniversary everyone. Thank you for all the amazing work that you have been doing and see you in another 25 years.”
