‘Thank you’ was the theme of the RBL presentation on Saturday the 19th of September that myself, Cdt Rossiter and CI Rogers attended.
The morning consisted of presentations of funds that were raised in the past year. All were inspiring stories, for example the Somme yomp which raised money for the RBL whilst paying respect for the 19,240 British soldiers that lost their lives on the first day of the Battle of the Somme.
The money raised for the RBL throughout the past year due to everyone’s hard work was broken down to the different sectors; Barnsley raised £181,559.26! It was an inspiring night that made everyone on the room think of the different ways they could raise money for them, not to mention the buffet at the end.
Overall it was a great time that made us feel honoured to attend.
