. 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.
Bill Gibson RIP IP: 220.127.116.11 Posted on 15/5/2016 at 09:41:23 by Tony O'Donovan
Posted on behalf of Mark Williams
Fusilier William (Bill) Gibson unfortunately passed away early last week at the age of 77 in his home in Highbury, North London. Bill had been suffering illness and dizziness for a number of weeks, so much so that I had ensured that I saw him at least every few days in case he needed anything and to generally check that he was okay.
Bill was not particularly close to his family and saw some of them a handful of times per year but was very well liked and highly thought of among the local community. He would walk his little dog Foxy through the community each day and night and it was this routine that gave me the privilege of meeting Bill regularly in the pub and being able to call him a friend. Bill was extremely proud of his army days, something that he would regularly reminisce with me about, and wanted to go to the Fusiliers memorial in Holborn this past remembrance Sunday but unfortunately did not feel well enough to do so. Over the past 6 months I helped Bill setup a Facebook account and he was keen to use this and the internet to try to connect with some old army pals however he unfortunately did not manage to do this before he passed away. I know that it would mean a great deal to Bill to extend the invite to his funeral and celebration of life to the regiment. I am in contact with his family so please feel free to contact me directly by email firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any final messages or wish to attend. I will be there myself to say goodbye to a wonderful man and friend who proudly served this great country. The pleasure of knowing Bill was truly mine.
