We are grateful to all our partners and supporters

As a charity we rely on the generous support of our donors, supporters and sponsors. We could not survive without them.

Our earliest days were made possible with land gifted from Tarmac, trees donated from the National Forest Company, and funding from the Millennium Commission. Since then, we have become part of the Royal British Legion and we receive a generous grant each year towards our upkeep. However, we still need our supporters as much as ever.


We are very thankful to the following organisations:

The Royal British Legion and branches

Friends of the National Memorial Arboretum

National Lottery Heritage Fund

Lichfield District Council

Ministry of Defence 

National Forest Company

Ride to the Wall

Staffordshire County Council





Barratt Developments Plc
Briggs Equipment UK 
Edith Murphy Foundation
Espree Jewellery Ltd
Intelligence Corps Association
JB Kind Ltd
Steel Charitable Trust
The Military Vehicle Trust


In memory of:

Thomas Rogers

And all our supporters who wish to remain anonymous
