Join us LIVE over on our Facebook Page, at 10am today for an interactive Q&A with Tommy Club Founding Patron, Ash Alexander-Cooper OBE and ‘Declassified’ Podcast host, Michael Coates.

Former Gurkha officer, combat helicopter pilot and Specialist Military Unit officer, Ash is taking on a huge challenge on behalf of RBLI –  completing a full marathon by running more than 4600 lengths of his hotel quarantine room in Sydney, Australia!

Ash is completing this challenge in memory of his grandfather Flt Lt Eddie Preedy RAF, who was a navigator in 617 (Dambusters) Squadron during WW2 and to raise vital funds for the veterans supported by RBLI.

If you would like to find out more about the challenge and support Ash, please visit his JustGiving Page.

Thank you Shepherd Neame!

We are so delighted that our amazing partner, Britain’s oldest brewer Shepherd Neame, have been able to open their doors again and welcome the Great British Public back!

Did you know that many of their pubs have signed up to Pennies, the Digital Charity Box where customers are invited to make a 25 pence donation to charity when they spend over £30. This simple and fantastic scheme has raised over £9,000 for our work with veterans. Now their doors are back open, every pint and every Sunday roast really does make a difference. What more excuse do you need?!

Thank you Shepherd Neame for always going the extra mile to support our work with veterans and people with disabilities, even throughout the pandemic.
