. CHARITABLE ADVERTISING on Web Site
There are many worthwhile charitable causes in existence, but we can only accept sponsorship or fundraising efforts on Fusilier Association websites, that specifically support approved Fusilier charities.
This essentially means that it is acceptable to use these pages to seek sponsorship for The Fusiliers Aid Society (which includes Fallen Fusiliers), and The Fusilier Memorial fund only.
We now have our own dedicated justgiving site (http://www.justgiving.com/fusiliersaidsociety), which you can use to help raise money for your cause. If you let RHQ (Asst Regt Sec) know the specific cause you are raising money for, it will be directed to the correct fund.
Messages soliciting sponsorship for causes or charities other than the Fusilier ones mentioned above should not be placed on the message board and may be removed by the Webmaster.

For those of you who sponsored my daughter Victoria on the Augusta Ironman (for which she and the Fusilier Aid Society are most grateful) I thought it worthwhile to publish her most creditable results. I doubt whether too many of the recipients of Fusilier News could match the timings, indeed I feel exhausted at the thought!

It is not too late to sponsor Victoria in aid of FAS, simply send a cheque made out to the Fusilier Aid Society to RHQ with a note entitled IRONMAN.
