Have you joined the Tommy 10,000 Step Challenge?

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

Dear , 

From everybody at RBLI, we hope that you had a peaceful festive period, and a Happy New Year. We would like to pass on our best wishes to all of you and your families for 2021.

Did you know that you’ve helped do something AMAZING this Christmas?

For many veterans, a Christmas at home with their family is simply not possible. On Christmas Day, RBLI were able to give another four homeless veterans warmth, ongoing shelter, safety and a Christmas dinner.  By purchasing from our online store, you have directly funded the amazing support these veterans have received, and made a huge difference to their quality of life.

Our Veterans are Back!

Over the Festive Period, the Veterans who work so hard in creating and dispatching our amazing Tommy products took a well-earned rest. Now, they’re back, dispatching your orders and continuing their vital role in keeping Britain running through the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are Here for You

We know that the extended periods or isolation and social distancing can be hard on people’s mental health, often provoking feelings of isolation or loneliness. We want you, our loyal supporters, to know that we are still here for you and want to make sure everyone feels part of this incredible community, even when we can’t physically be together.

Whether you need support yourself, or would like to extend a hand to others, we have several online groups where you can find friends both locally and nationally. If you have joined the Tommy Club, you will find a thriving community of friends with daily interactions, or join the Tommy 10,000 Step challenge and your peers in the group will motivate you to get out the house everyday!

Recently in these groups, people have been sharing advice, activities, and even organising food deliveries or Zoom calls for those that need it.

Remember, you are never alone when you are part of the RBLI community.

Have you signed up for the Tommy 10,000 Step Challenge?

It’s not too late to sign up to the RBLI Tommy Step Challenge! Start any day in January, and complete 10,000 steps a day over 31 days. This totals 155 miles, which is the distance covered by our Tommies during the fighting retreat to Dunkirk in 1940.

Join an amazing, positive community who are all finding ways to squeeze in the 10,000 steps in good spirits.

All of those who sign up will receive daily diary updates, two videos per week from award-winning historian Neil Storey, and access to an amazing community Facebook group.

There are three different challenges available, depending on your level of ability:

The Corporal Challenge

10,000 steps per day, for 31 days

The Paratrooper/ Commando Challenge

10,000 steps per day, weighted, for 31 days

The Special Forces Challenge

310,000 steps as quickly as you can!

Get Prepared for Clap for Heroes

As the Nation enters another Lockdown, it is more important than ever that we show our appreciation and support for the heroes that keep the country going.

As always, RBLI continues to provide longer term specialist support and care as well as shorter respite care packages and assisted living services.

Why not show your support by wearing or displaying one of RBLI’s Florence Nightingale lapel pins, badges, stickers or window ornaments?
