Hello Friend
New year, new opportunities to support those in need
As we head into mid-January, the RBLI team look forward to what’s to come in 2022! From Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, to remembering the Falklands 40 years on. Here’s to a Happy New Year from all of us at the RBLI!

There has already been some exciting developments in our plans for 2022, and there are still a number of fantastic fundraising opportunities and incentives to be apart of this year. As the Tommy Club continues to gain significant momentum, we have already been in discussions with numerous partners and patrons to further aid our community of veterans with unwavering support.
