How to support
There are many many ways you can support this appeal!
You could donate directly to The Colonel’s Fund or you could use easyfundraising – an internet search engine that donates money every time you shop on line. You could leave the fund money in your will or organise a fundraising event.
This could be almost anything; you are only limited by your imagination. You might want to raise funds by running a marathon, holding an auction, writing a book, painting a picture, organizing a Burns Supper or a barbecue. The project office at Regimental Headquarters will assist you wherever and however it can and will feature your event on these webpages.

Everyone wants to ensure that when they die, they look after those they love and care about. In many cases, they may wish to leave a legacy to their Regiment to recognise the ‘family’ with which they have served over the years.
There are three types of legacy that can be left:
A Residuary legacy – which is a percentage of the value of your estate once all other payments have been made (eg outstanding debts, tax etc).
A Pecuniary legacy – which is a gift of a fixed amount of money.
A Specific legacy – which specifies a personal possession (eg antiques, jewellery etc) or specific investment such as shares.
For further information on legacy giving please contact us on 0207 414 3333.
Please discuss any such gift with your financial advisor and contact us on 0207 414 3333 for further details before gifting shares or any other assets.
