Blesma nominated charity at the 2022 Belfast International Tattoo

Blesma is delighted to be the charity of choice at this year’s Belfast International Tattoo.

To celebrate our 90th anniversary, the Belfast International Tattoo has chosen to recognise Blesma’s incredible work in supporting injured and limbless veterans to live independent and fulfilling lives. 

As well as raising donations for the charity around SSE Arena Belfast, Blesma Members are even included in the performance programme, joining the greatest acts from all four corners of the globe on the arena platform.

Our all-Northern Ireland procession will include injured veterans Bryan Phillips, Nigel Lockhart, Brian McKee, Colin Shields, Graham Kelly, and Mark Rogerson, widow Jean McCready and volunteer Mark Crilly. Former Irish Guard Bryan, who lost both his leg while serving in Afghanistan ten years ago, will be the flag bearer for the Association.
