On July 9th 2019, Veterans and their children were joined by the international singer and Forces Sweetheart Kirsten Orsborn in a recording studio. Kirsten has continuously supported the Forces and Veterans charities for 11 years. Kirsten was adopted by The Royal Marines Association as their sweetheart in 2014 at the age of 17, followed by the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in 2018. Kirsten regularly visits the Royal Hospital of Chelsea to perform and chat to the pensioners she now likes to call her friends. February 2019 Kirsten voluntarily travelled to the Falkland Island to perform for the serving and ex veterans along with the children and families living there. Kirsten is very proud to be the patron to Minds at War and The Homeless Veterans Project.
