Sandbag Times Patron and three times British Touring Car Champion Matt Neal will officially open the new Tommy Atkins Centre on 18th January 2019 at the KGV, Brickfields, Worcester.
The new facility, supplied by the Worcester Community Trust, came in to operation earlier this month with much improved facilities to support the veterans community in Worcestershire and Herefordshire.
Backed by the Worcester City Council, it is planned that this new site will be the first of three facilities under the Tommy Atkins Banner to operate within the region.
Matt, 52, has been a long supporter of the UK Armed Forces and Veterans with many of his friends having served. He became Patron of the SBT in 2017 and regularly visits the centre to be brought up to speed on current issues and plans within the centre.
Combat Stress, SSAFA and other veterans organisations will also be present at the opening providing an opportunity for the public to learn more about the services and to meet the British Motor Racing Legend who is taking time out prior to his 2019 BTCC Campaign to open the centre and support veterans.
