Will you give the gift of Tommy?

An item from the organization formerly known as There But Not There.

Hi ,

It’s almost December and the festive season is upon us. A time to celebrate, and a time to reflect. This year it will be different for everyone, not least for veterans arriving at our emergency accommodation Mount Batten Pavillion. It can be the first time they’ve slept in a proper bed in years. With a bedroom, kitchen and garden, we give them dignity, a space to call their own and  help to make a plan towards independence, built around the things they enjoy.

Together, we can make sure no veterans are left behind this Christmas

So many of you have joined the Tommy Club and we have an amazing online community. It has been such a pleasure getting to know you all. Here’s why we need you to encourage others to join or give a subscription as a gift…

On a freezing December night in 2019, Alan arrived at our emergency accommodation. At 82 years old, this veteran had been found sleeping alone in his car.

By giving a Tommy Club subscription for £15, you will not only give a gift to a loved one, but could provide safety, hot meals and clothes for veterans like Alan.


New Christmas Products!

Veterans that come through our emergency accommodation can find employment through BBMC, RBLI’s social enterprise. At BBMC, they have been busy getting in the festive spirit, and are excited to show you their latest creations!
We are now proud to sell Christmas Tree Planters and Tommy Tree Decorations, all made by our veterans in Aylesford, Kent.

Every purchase helps support them this Christmas.
