RBLI hosts Tommy Club Champion Party

More than 100 military veterans and charity supporters came together at Royal British Legion Industries’ Aylesford village this month to celebrate the first anniversary of its national veteran support programme the Tommy Club – with a select few taking away special gold awards for their continued fundraising efforts.

RBLI’s Tommy Club launched in October 2020 to help raise vital funds for the country’s most vulnerable veterans during the pandemic. Since then, it has raised more than £165,000 through more 1,600 supporters based all over the UK and even landed England Captain Harry Kane as an official ambassador.

Fifteen champions were presented with the coveted Tommy gold awards by RBLI’s Deputy Chief Executive Lisa Farmer for their significant contributions to Club. Of them was Michelle Dougan, who travelled from Scotland all the way to Kent to attend the event. Michelle was awarded gold for her role in the charity’s VE Day Celebrations, called Tommy’s Race to Victory. Michelle, along with six others, ran and cycled all the way from Glasgow down to the charity’s Kent home over just ten days.
By joining the club, Tommy Club Champions contribute so much to help RBLI provide the services and support that all veterans in this country deserve.
Join the Tommy club for less than £2 a month

Tommy Mini Mission!

The MINI was proudly unveiled by three veterans employed in RBLI’s social enterprise factory, Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company.
The new MINI 3-door Hatch embodies our love for fun-filled, joyful driving. Capturing our inimitable spirit, it maintains iconic go-kart handling along with game-changing tech and a sleek design.
We’re thrilled to be launching our first ever raffle, Tommy’s MINI Mission, on 17th September 2021. This fantastic raffle prize was donated by our chairman Stephen Kingsman, and our raffle will run until April 1st 2022.
The funds raised in the raffle will assist RBLI with the new Centenary Village, our ambitious capital project to create high-quality facilities, services and structures necessary to offer another 100 years supporting vulnerable people. This offers more disability-adapted apartments, assisted-living, family homes, extra specialist dementia care, and a new two storey community centre with an IT learning suite and a fully accessible gym.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support for RBLI.
