Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion is known to millions for the work it does helping those who have served their country, not only in the Second World War but in conflicts since, and even ongoing as we see so tragically in the news. The nation comes to a halt on November 11th and rightly so to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you.

 

 

VE and VJ Days 75th Anniversary 2020

May 2020 will  see the 75th anniversary of VE Day and August the 75th anniversary of VJ Day. To commemorate this important milestone we are asking Clubs to hold a golf event either in May, August or, as many do, in November, with donations being sent in to the RBL main bank account after the event. For full details of how to get your Club involved, send me an email.

IMPORTANT - as we are now in a situation where normal life (including golf) is at a virtual standstill, we have decided to suspend all golf and fund-raising activities until the end of May. Several hundred GCs had agreed to take part in our special VE Golf programme - this is now postponed until a later date - either in August or late summer, in November, or even into 2021.
We shall have to wait and see - but do send any questions or comments to me.

 

VE-Day+75  Quiz Night

We also have a special VE Day +75 Quiz  that your Club could use - we obviously hope it will raise some funds which you can then send to RBL. Just email for more details (see below).

 

Walsall GC have, over the past couple of years, planted and tended a small field of poppies in memory of those who gave their lives during bygone conflicts. A fabulous idea.
