Red, White & Blue Day is a chance for every school in the country to show their support for the huge number of Service families in the UK.

If each school child gave just £1 to wear red, white and blue the project would raise millions for soldiers, sailors, airmen and their families.

Service children are brave and adaptable but they are also often under strain and can be vulnerable.
