1940s-themed party to help World War II veterans return to Normandy on D-Day.
Taxi Charity For Military Veterans is planning a final trip to the site of the D-Day landings in June and is looking to raise enough money to take 250 veterans in 90 taxis.
The event was originally planned for the Spitfire Cafe in Biggin Hill, but the venue has been moved to the Kings Arms in Leaves Green to cope with the expected turnout.
There are plans to turn the pub into a recruiting office, and members of the public will be able to meet WWII veterans and Chelsea Pensioners, see military vehicles and dance to 1940s music.
So why not come in 1940s style .

Biggin Hill Breakfast Club Next meeting 12th September 11.00am
Alfie Davidson, ex Royal Signals, serving member of Her Majesty's Forces, asked me if we could have a Veteran's Breakfast Club at the spitfire cafe.
They are all over the country and worldwide but as yet not in Biggin Hill.
We both looked in to it and thought it would be an excellent idea.
So once a mouth on the Tuesday24th May 9.30am
We thought it would be good if ex-service members could wear their badges so we could identify them from civilian's they can sit together and banter.
