GP90 - The Great Pilgrimmage
Throughout the year we will be raising money to enable two Branch members to attend the Great Pilgrimage at the Menin Gate, Ypres, on 8 Aug 2018. A decade after the end of WW1 veterans and war widows visited the battlefields of Somme and Ypres and then marched to the Menin Gat, on 8th August 1928. The British Legion decided to recreate the Pilgrimage and are offering two places to attend, from each Branch.
Limited-Edition Cask Ale for the Poppy Appeal
We are always looking for new ideas to help raise funds for the Legion. I have just heard that the Winkle Brewing Company based in the Peak District will be producing a limited-edition cask ale in support of the RBL. Named “Standard Bearer”. It will be on sale from 23 Oct and the brewery will donate £10 for each firkin sold. Winkle Brewery can be found at www.winklebrewery.co.uk.
