. 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.
Messages posted in the last 24 hrs. are in White.

EXCLUSIVE: Lorry is their first named after Lee Rigby
EXCLUSIVE by JAKE RYAN
a day ago
HAULAGE giant Eddie Stobart has named a lorry after murdered soldier Lee Rigby.
It is the only one in the firm’s 45 years not to be called after a woman.
The 15-ton Lee James Rigby was unveiled by Lee’s trucker dad Phil McClure, who has worked for Stobart for seven years.
He revealed that Fusilier Lee, 25, hoped to become a driver there too after leaving the Army and had sent in papers to apply, before his death at the hands of Islamic extremists in London in 2013.

Phil, 54, of Oldham, Gtr Manchester said: “To have my boy’s name on a truck is something really special and such a fitting memorial.
“He’d have wanted to sit in that cab and drive it.”
Lee’s widow Rebecca and son Jack, four, plus the soldier’s favourite charity Help for Heroes joined Phil at a ceremony at the firm’s museum in Crick, Northants, last Friday. The lorry will go on display there.
Boss William Stobart said: “The company is proud to honour Lee’s memory.”
