On 6th June, 1944 over 130,000 Allied troops invaded the shores of Normandy in what remains the largest single-day amphibious invasion of all time. This day will forever be known as D-Day. Today, there are approximately 500 surviving WWII D-Day British veterans.
UK-based media company BMB has created ‘The Overlord List’ – a charitable initiative aimed at sending every one of the 500 surviving D-Day veterans back to Normandy to mark the 65th anniversary of the historical event. Delta Force has joined forces with BMB to help raise the £175,000 needed to make the dream become a reality and send all 500 veterans over for the anniversary.
Over the coming weeks Delta Force is working towards raising the necessary funds, and we are asking for your kind assistance. We are asking all group organisers to donate a minimum of £2.00 towards The Overlord List at the time of booking, with all proceeds passed directly to the D-Day veterans’ charity. Other fundraising initiatives down at the 23 Delta Force centres throughout the UK include charity collection tins at all of our shops. We kindly ask that you donate any loose change you have at the end of your day paintballing.
In a larger fundraising initiative, Delta Force is hosting various paintball games over the coming weeks and months where all entrance and equipment fees are donated to The Overlord List. With £9.99 donated to the D-Day veterans for every player that books a game, Delta Force, with your valuable assistance, aims to contribute significantly to the charitable fund.
If you want to help Delta Force reach our target of raising £175,000 then call the booking office on 0844 477 5050 – your help is greatly appreciated.
