RBLI Welcomes Kent County Council Leader

It was a pleasure to host the leader of Kent County Council, Roger Gough, to RBLI’s Aylesford Village. Roger was able to see first-hand the work the charity is doing to support vulnerable military veterans.

As part of the tour, Roger met our team of former Gurkhas who work at the heart of the sign making facility in Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company – including Afghanistan veteran Anil Gurung who in 2009 lost his leg in a bomb explosion just 20 days before the end of his last tour.

Anil and the team made a unique sign for Roger to mark his first visit to the factory in his role as council leader.

After the factory, Mr Gough then met some of the 300 veterans and their families who call the charity’s village home.
“It has been a real privilege to visit the RBLI and explore the leading work it is doing to support Kent’s military veterans into employment. It is only right our veterans get all the support they can to be independent. I welcome that together with the RBLI we are providing them with a chance at a second life.”

Memorial Event

We were honoured to officially open the new Garden of Reflection on Saturday 11th September, on the RBLI village. The Garden offers a space dedicated to quiet contemplation, where individuals can come to remember those from our community that we have lost. We were delighted to be joined at the opening by some family members of residents we sadly lost from our community due to COVID over the past 18 months.
This new space is open year-round as a place to come together and celebrate the lives of our dear friends, each sorely missed by us all.
They represent the great generation whose sacrifice will not be forgotten. They were pillars of our community, each contributing to make our village one of compassion, care, support and friendship. We are proud to say that they are forever part of the RBLI community.
We also had the privilege of awarding our Florence Nightingale ‘Thank-You’ awards to our wonderful carers who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic. We are so grateful to all they have sacrificed and it was an honour to have Nadra Ahmed OBE DL, Chairman of the National Care Association and Trustee of RBLI, to present our carers with their awards and express her own personal thanks to them.
