RNLI is our MARCH Charity of the Month #COTM
RNLI was founded by William Hillary on 4 March 1824, for the preservation of life following a shipwreck . The charity has 237 lifeboat stations, operates 444 lifeboats and has saved over 140,000 lives since it was founded. The crew rescue on average 22 people a day. During WW2 some 6,376 lives were saved alone. The biggest rescue was 17 March 1907, when a 12,000 tonne liner ‘SS Suevic’ hit Maenheere Reef, near Lizard Point in Cornwall. The lifeboats rowed out repeatedly for 16 hours, to rescue all 456 passengers which included 70 babies on board.
“”Ohhhhhh Helllloooo !!!!””
Your support means that the RNLI volunteers are trained to save lives at sea and stay safe in well maintained and kitted out lifeboats. As a charity, they depend on supporters like YOU to keep them ‘afloat’. Your team and outstanding fundraising makes the difference, be YOU and be BRILLIANT with your fundraising … whatever crazy idea it is!!!!
RAF Benevolent Fund is our APRIL Charity of the Month
This charity was founded by Lord Trenchard in 1918, to assist airmen and women after The Great War, who had no charity of their own. In 2016 they spent 17.6 million delivering a spectrum of care to more than 65,000 members of the RAF family, so rely on charitable assistance. The centenary year is this year, 2018, what a better way to mark it as the great Sir William Churchill said in 1940 of the RAF.. “Never in the field of human conflict, was so much owed by so many to so few “……..
“Ok you AC PLONKS!”

ASSOCIATION OF AIR AMBULANCE is our SEPTEMBER Charity of the Month
The first recorded ‘British’ ambulance flight took place in Turkey in 1917, when a soldier in the ‘camel corps’ who had been shot in the ankle, was flown to hospital in a ‘de Havilland DH9’ in 45 minutes. The same journey by land would have taken some 3 days to complete. The Air Ambulance Associations vision is to improve a patients outcome, in a severe trauma by 30-40%. Of up to 5,000 ‘999’ calls for Ambulance made every day to the London Ambulance Service, up to 7 most critical are passed to the Air Ambulance. This all speaks for itself…..
“Chocks Away , Hostie Helimed”
As you have probably guessed, your amazeballs fundraising will go to this totally brilliant charity, The Air Ambulance Service does not receive any government funds. Their hourly, daily, monthly life saving missions are fuelled by your donations alone. Every flight saves lives, keep going strong, to help them keep flying high.
“Up, up and away, you are clear for fundraising take off!!!”
JUST RIFLES is our OCTOBER Charity of the Month #COTM
The charity all began with solicitor Bryan Fugler, wanting to do something to raise funds in the memory of family friend Lance Corporal Thomas Keogh , who was killed in action in Sangin Province , Afghanistan . We attended the annual dinner and dance last October 2017 and were humbled and thrilled to have been asked. We wanted to show our support after seeing first hand how this charity helps our heroes.
“Twittt Twooo, Hellllooooo!!”
Firstly, thank you for your support it means so much , it means that Just Rifles can continue to give a personal touch to the many injured servicemen and women and bereaved families with finding things they need like bespoke sporting equipment right through to household items . So your opportunity now is to put your personal touch to your fundraising, whatever your event. All we ask is do it in style and give it some “Riflemen welly”!!!!
Best Of Luck!!!
