The Regimental Family...
What we stand for:
- Emotional Support
175 years of Support
Why? Since 1839 we have been helping Gunners in need, both serving and retired and their dependants. Such charitable work is at the very heart of the family regiment and today it continues in ernest. It is vital for the future welfare of the regimental family, with many veterans from the latter half of the 20th Century, and especially from operations in Iraq and Afghanistan needing help now and in the future. Our welfare expenditure has risen over the last few years; indeed welfare expenditure has doubled in five years whilst income has struggled to keep pace. Help us to help others.
Legacies are a key part of our income, but sadly are an unpredictable source of funding. We are very grateful for those who over the last one hundred and seventy years have remembered the RA Charitable Fund in their wills, but legacies have drastically reduced in the last few years, and we are asking if you can help to reverse this trend.
