. 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.
The 1ST Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers will lay up its former Colours on Thursday 5th May 2016 at the Tower of London beginning at 1100 hrs. This is the last time that these Colours will ever be carried on a parade.
A guard of honour from the First Battalion will conduct a short parade in the environs of the Tower which will then be followed by a service of dedication in the Chapel Royal, St Peter ad Vincula where the old Colours will subsequently be on display. Following the service there will be a buffet lunch provided in RHQ. The event should conclude by 1330hrs.
The capacity of the Chapel Royal is limited to 130 people. It is intended to keep invited VIP guests to a minimum so there are 50 places available to any serving or former member of the Regiment who wishes to apply for tickets. They will be issued on a first come first served basis.
Those wishing to attend should apply for tickets direct to RHQ at the following email address: INFHQ-QUEENS-RRF-ChfClk@mod.uk
The closing date for applications is Friday 29 April 2016. Guests who wish to remain for the buffet lunch should note that there will be a cost for attending the buffet lunch (approx. £10). A cash bar will be available. Payment can be made on the day.
