                 TEAM RUBICON is our JANUARY Charity of the Month #COTM

Team Rubicon Uk was founded on 12th January 2010 , by US Marines, William McNulty and Jacob Wood following the Haiti earthquake. They rented a truck from the Dominican Republic and drove west to Haiti. The team treated thousands of patients travelling to camps deemed “too dangerous” by other aid organisations. The name Rubicon is from a phase “crossing the rubicon” an idiom to mean passing the point of no return. Team Rubicon have since founded, been deployed to over 175 operations all over the world, allowing veterans to continue to be reintegrated and serve their country.

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!”

(No offence , that’s your RAF slang for new low rank, Aircraft personnel -second class) 😉
Time to put on your ‘Battle Blues’ or your ‘Best Blues’ , don’t get ‘tatered’, just use your SOP’s and raise much needed pennies in your ‘Beehive Formation’!!!
Well Tally Ho Ladies, you have clearance for an amazing fundraiser!!!
“Go show them what ladies are made of and Good Luck!!”

 

HELP FOR HEROES is our MAY Charity of the Month #COTM

Although it was founded on the 1st October 2007 , H4H hit the headlines and charitable donations increased, as there was a huge outpouring of support after the killing of Drummer and soldier Lee Rigby whom was off duty near his barracks, he was killed wearing a Help for Heroes top on the 22nd May 2013 . Over £600,000.00 was donated during that time, such was the feeling of support. 
Thank you, your support means that we can continue the great work of awareness and fundraising for this brilliant charity. Whatever your challenge, big or small, you are assisting our wounded armed forces personnel to rebuild their lives, after putting their lives second, they now get a second chance of life, through this charity. 
So please go, enjoy, have fun and continue the Hostie legacy for Help for Heroes and be part of the #ForceforGood
“ Go smash all previous targets and show us what you’re made of!!!” 

 

BLIND VETERANS is our JUNE Charity of the Month #COTM

It was initially set up to help blinded soldiers in the 1st World War, to date having helped over 15,000 servicemen and women have access to the finest quality services , to help them discover life beyond sight loss . We felt that June would be the perfect month to show our gratitude by showing our support.
Welcome and firstly thank you for your support . The Blind Veterans charity believe that no one who has served our great country, should battle blindness alone, and so do we. It’s up to you to make that vision happen by your sheer grit and determination with your fundraising events. All we ask is that you keep the target in your sights and go smash it for the veterans, who have served this country and kept us safe.

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!!!”
