. 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.
Area Secretary (North) - Lieutenant Colonel M McDonald
After a gap of seven months RHQ is pleased to announce that the Regiment has contracted Lt Col (Retd) Mike McDonald to fill the role of the Area Sec (North) wef from 20 January 2022. Mike began his career with the 3rd Fusiliers in the mid-70s. On commissioning he served with the PWRR. He lives in the NW and many of you will know him well.
Mike is contracted to provide 8 working days per month. He will manage his allocation of time, but it is aimed that he will be in the Bury office for at least one day a week. He will be supported by the E1 clerk, Mrs Linsay Pepperell in the office.
This is not the full-time coverage that we would prefer but due to the current recruitment moratorium on recruiting new civil servants the Regimental Council made the decision at the December Council meeting to contract someone to represent RHQ in Lancashire and funding the contract with Regimental funds.
The Colonel of the Regiment RHQ and all Fusiliers welcome Mike back into the Regiment.
