The Buchanan Trust was established 24th September 1918 in memory of Robert Buchanan's eldest son Alan, who fell at the 1st Battle of Bellewaarde just outside Ypres on 16th June 1915.
Located just outside the village of Bosbury in Herefordshire, the trusts Mission is to help those who have served in the armed forces, enabling them to transition into civilian life by offering short term accommodation, accredited training, skills, work experience and employment opportunities in the rural and construction sectors.
The trust also has the potential to support veterans in chainsaw use, tractor driving, agricultural sprayer, excavator and fork-lift training, adventure training and various forestry skills etc.
Their Vision is to create a national facility for former service men and women who can live within a community where they can help each other to recover, grow, learn, and work.
An exciting new development of four new veterans’ cottages, all of which would not be possible without your donations. See the images below showing the 'Before and After' of Phase 1 followed by a timelapse video of Phase 2.
Sometimes veterans themselves, the public and trustees find additional means of fundraising, through charity runs, selling our veteran made bird boxes and bird tables etc.
Follow the progress of the trust and that of our veterans via buchanan-trust.org.uk or via our social media platforms linked to our website.
