This year, Royal British Legion Industries will embark on the biggest national campaign in its history of more than 100 years.

Last year, all celebrations were scrapped; the public was left with no way to recognise the iconic 75th anniversary of VE Day.

However, this year, we will see the nation galvanised as part of Tommy’s Race to Victory Relay – a truly national event that will see RBLI’s iconic Tommy figure travel the length of the UK, stopping at iconic military locations and cities on the way.

RBLI’s incredibly successful #TommyInTheWindow campaign will once again come to the fore to see the British public commemorate along with a range of challenges and activities that everyone can get involved in. 🏃🍰📣

Will you join us in marking this VE Day? Visit our VE Day Hub to see how you can get involved!

Can you help us Race to Victory for a marathon finish?

You are really getting in the street party spirit – together you’ve bought over 5 miles of VE Day bunting!

We’ve decided to set you all a challenge…can you line the streets with a marathon distance of bunting for VE Day? We would be delighted to smash 26 miles of bunting because it creates employment for our beneficiaries and helps to fund all the amazing services we provide across RBLI.

To help you help us, we have put together a discounted 4 pack VE Day Tommy Bunting Bundle.
