. 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.
Programme for the National Army Museum (Members and Patrons) IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on 28/9/2020 at 13:26:06 by Dennis Laverick for RHQ
Dear Major McCarthy
Please find attached a proposed programme for scheduled events for Members and Patrons of the museum.
At this stage, the events in bold are for Patrons only. If you are interested, please contact me and I can give more information.
Out of necessity, I intend to deliver the Membership programme virtually. The events will be accessed via the internet live with a Q and A. Equally, you can listen to the events at a later date as they are recorded. The cost to members is £20 recurring card payment for two years, £25 for one off payment for the first two years. It will rise to £45.00 per year after that.
The first talk is Maj Gen (retd) Paul Nanson talking about command and leadership. Programme for the National Army Museum (Members and Patrons)
