Weʼre raising £500 to Andy Batten’s Leaving Gift

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Hi Guys,

Some of you may or may not be aware that the November remembrance training weekend will sadly be Andy Batten’s last weekend with the squadron.

Andy has been in the squadron for a very long time and has done a lot for the squadron and for the lads. With that mind we need to give him a good send off!

With the loss of our squadron bar I am currently in comms with the fire cell and the plan is to have access to their bar on Saturday night (10th Nov) where we can share some memories, have some beers and raise our glasses.

This event is open to all gunners past and present so please spread the word.

Andy is aware of this but doesn’t know who’s coming.

If you’re not taking part in the remembrance weekend then please still do your best and try to call in for a beer.

I will be setting up a justgiving page in order to raise funds for Andy to either give him cash or Cotswolds outdoor vouchers. If anyone can think of anything they believe he might prefer then let it be known.

Cheers guys and hope you can make it
