Indian Soldiers in WW1
Chattri Group Grant Award

Chattri Group Grant Award

On 23rd March 2015, the Chattri Group were awarded a grant of £500.00 by the High Sheriff of East Sussex, Mr. Chris Gebbie, as a token of his thanks for the work they do as volunteers within the local community, "in recognition of the great and valuable services to the community." The High Sheriff's Fund at the Sussex Community Foundation tends to be awarded to volunteers and voluntary groups whose work is often unnoticed but is hugely valued.

The event was hosted by the Mayor and Lady Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Cllr Brian Fitch and his wife Nora in the Mayor's Parlour. The High Sheriff was particularly impressed by the Chattri Group for their work in ensuring that the contribution and sacrifice of Indian soldiers in fighting alongside British troops is not forgotten. The images show the Chattri Group Volunteers present at the ceremony.
