Hello 
It was fantastic to welcome Secretary of State for Scotland, Rt Hon Alister Jack MP, to our social enterprise, Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company, on Thursday 14th October.

Alister Jack said:
‚ÄúIt was a real pleasure to visit Scotland‚Äôs Bravest Manufacturing Company to see first-hand the work they are doing to support disadvantaged Scottish veterans. ‚ÄúThroughout the pandemic their team of veterans have been providing a truly valuable service to Scotland, producing signage for businesses and healthcare providers, including the NHS, so that essential workers and those on the front line of care can return swiftly to work. ‚ÄúIt was really inspiring to see how the factory has continued to grow at pace over the past year. The Scotland‚Äôs Bravest model clearly shows that it‚Äôs possible for enterprises to become leaders in industry while genuinely improving people’s¬†lives.‚ÄĚ

Hello 

Tommy 10k aboard HMS Prince Of Wales 

Did you see the absolutely incredible kick off to our Tommy 10k this week? The crew of one of the Royal Navy’s leading aircraft carriers joined forces with Royal British Legion Industries to launch a national fundraising campaign which aims to raise vital funds for the military charity.

On Wednesday 6th October, more than 60 crew members of the HMS Prince of Wales took on RBLI‚Äôs Tommy 10k challenge which encourages participants to run, walk or ‚Äėwheel‚Äô 10 kilometres over the coming Remembrance period to fundraise for ex-service personnel and their families.

Crewmembers took part in the challenge on the ship’s 280 metre-long flight deck, which has space for three full-size football pitches. Joining them was RBLI’s Chief Executive Steve Sherry CMG OBE.

The Tommy 10k, so named after RBLI’s iconic Tommy figure, first launched at the height of the pandemic in November last year with more than 2,000 taking part to help to raise more than £250,000 for vulnerable military veterans during the pandemic.

This year however, Royal British Legion Industries are looking to mobilise Armed Forces units, regiments, crews, bases, stations and garrisons to take part, calling on them to raise £5,000 in return for naming rights to a room of the charity’s new Centenary Village.

The HMS Prince of Wales is one of the most powerful surface warships ever constructed in the UK. The 65,000 tonne ship holds a minimum of 700 crew members which rises to 1,600 with aircraft on board. The carrier was in Portsmouth, where the Tommy10k will take place, after its final training exercise before becoming fully operational.

Join the Tommy 10k now!

Hello 

RBLI hosts Tommy Club Champion Party

More than 100 military veterans and charity supporters came together at Royal British Legion Industries‚Äô Aylesford village this month to celebrate the first anniversary of its national veteran support programme the Tommy Club ‚Äď 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
