. 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.
Funeral details for Joe Farquhar President Oldham Branch IP: 184.108.40.206 Posted on 22/3/2018 at 14:27:34 by Ron Owen
Good afternoon to all Fusiliers.
I have received details for the funeral of our President Mr Joe Farquhar JP and 5RRF. The funeral will take place on Thursday 29th March 2018 at 09:45 at the United Reform Church Oldham on Union Street. After the service the coffin will be taken to Middleton Cemetery at 11:00 hrs. The wake will be at Heyside Cricket Club. Only family flowers, and any donations to the Royal British Legion.
I have asked Nichola is they would like the Regimental Drape and a wreath from Oldham Branch and she has replied yes please. If we could manage to get six able bodied Fusiliers to carry the coffin that would be great, mind you I think the last time I attended this church the coffin was wheeled in.
I will keep you up to date with any changes.
Secretary & Treasurer
