About the Big Salute

The BFBS Big Salute is an annual campaign that raises vital funds for armed forces charities. It is separate to grants awarded under the BFBS Welfare Fund scheme.

Most recently, the BFBS Big Salute has awarded grants to nine charities: Building Heroes, Bournemouth War Memorial Homes, Clervaux Trust, AF&V Launchpad, Our Wilton Trust, Royal Air Forces Association, Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, Scotty's Little Soldiers and Winchester Sea Cadets.

We will be inviting armed forces charities to apply for the next round of grants in April 2020.
