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.

To celebrate the Fusilier family and friendships:
• The last gathering was held in 2013 and after the last two years of the pandemic it will be a chance to meet up with former colleagues and friends at a large social event.
• Regimental anniversaries
o The 30th anniversary of the disbandment of 3rd Battalion and the creation of the two battalion regiment.
o The 25th anniversary of the deployment of the 2nd Battalion on Op LODESTAR, Bosnia

• How much will it cost?
We have been able to secure some sponsorship for the event as well as a significant subsidy from the Regiment. Therefore, the cost (including reception drinks and half a bottle of wine at the table) will be £25 for a single ticket which is fantastic value for what is on offer. Cash bars will also be available.

• Booking Tickets
Booking tickets is easy and the booking window is now open. Follow the instructions given and complete the ‘Booking Tickets Form’. Please note that for planning purposes the booking window will close on Friday 17th June. Payment will be required to secure your bookings and we will operate a reserve list.

• Where can you stay?
Please view the final page of this note for details of suggested accommodation options. A free shuttle bus service between 3 of the local hotels will be provided during certain periods.
Please note that accommodation will be at a premium in July and so all hotels require booking by 9th June or the rooms will be released. For those who choose to drive there is ample carparking at the venue.

Of course, you can book your own hotel directly using the various hotel booking websites, often getting great deals with advance notice.

• How can you help make this a truly Fusilier family-wide event?
This is a Fusilier family event, and we want all ranks to be able to attend. Whilst we have made every effort to contact Fusiliers on Regimental databases, we are aware that this communication may not reach all Fusiliers, past and present. To this end, please take it upon yourselves to contact your current and former colleagues and friends and pass on this information about FG22. We have a lot to celebrate and commemorate this year so please do your best to attend yourself and encourage others to attend.

• Where can I find more details?
This note and other details as they become available can be found at the following link.

https://thefusiliers.org/fusilier-gathering-22/

I hope this is sufficient information for you to save the date and start to plan your attendance at the 2022 Fusilier Gathering.

Best wishes and we look forward to seeing you on the 9th July.
