Imperial Competitors Raise Funds for Charities
The NRA maintains proud links with the military and over the course of the Imperial Meeting, competitors raised funds for two notable Charities with military connections – which we are pleased to promote in line with our 1860 charter.
Help for Heroes:
Donations made by CSR competitors raised £235, which will go towards ensuring that every single Hero – serving and veteran- gets support that’s designed especially for them and their recovery. A letter of thanks from the H4H team stated that “Long-term recovery is more than repairing damaged bodies and minds; its about rebuilding lives. Our mission is to deliver an enduring network of support to help our Heroes with their challenges and to go on to live active, independent and fulfilling lives.”
Gurkha Welfare Trust:
Over 400 TR competitors took part in the Gurkha Appeal (concurrent with St George’s First Stage), raising £2005.64 for the Gurkha Welfare Trust. The top three placed shooters received an ornate Kukri kindly donated by the Trust.
A letter of thanks from the Trust highlighted the significance of the donation “In 2019 we are celebrating 50 years of the Gurkha Welfare Trust in Nepal, and the recent donation from the 150th Imperial Meeting is an outstanding example of just how our supporters have helped us reach this milestone. Congratulations to you all too on the 150th Meeting; hopefully we one day will also be celebrating 150 years!
Thank you everyone who has been a part of the brilliant £2005.64 donation towards caring for Gurkha veterans in Nepal. This amount could cover the Welfare Pension for two of our veterans for a year, a lifeline for some who rely on this as their only income.”
