Martin holding a veteran pack

Martin Flint-Johnson, the Armed Forces Advocate at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, is holding another Brew Up event on Wednesday 10 July.

The Brew Up is from 9.30-10.30am in the restaurant (location C30) at Airedale Hospital and free brews and cake are on offer, in the new comfortable seating area in the Restaurant.

Anyone with a military connection including patients, visitors and staff who are serving or ex-armed forces are welcome to drop by.

Martin says:

“It’s just about getting together, sharing stories and giving a bit of support or advice if it’s needed, along with some forces chat.

Anyone who’s served can stop by and find some friendly faces and a bit of company. It’s also about getting to know people in the community.”

Martin started the ‘Brew Ups’ in January and now has a regular number of veterans and their families coming along to chat and support each other.  Staff veterans also regularly come along from the Navy and RAF to join in and offer their support.

Martin is an ex-serviceman himself and served in the Army with the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers for 10 years, on both active service and peacekeeping tours around the world. He is now in receipt of a War Disability Pension for physical ailments which occurred while serving and received support from the Hidden Wounds service for his mental health, providing him with a good understanding of the challenges some people from the Armed Forces community may experience.
