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.


On the 8th of August 2018, The Royal British Legion, in  the  biggest  membership  event  in  it's  history, is recreating it's 1928 pilgrimage to World  War One battlefields.  A decade  after  the  end  of  WW1,  veterans  and  war  widows  visited  the  battlefields  of  the  Somme  and  Ypres  before  marching  to the Menin Gate  in  Ypres  on  8  August  1928.

Exactly 90  years  later,  thousands  of  Legion  members  will  recreate  The  1928  Great  Pilgrimage  to  visit  the  same  battlefields  and  then,  on  8th August 2018,  carry  their  standards  along  the  same  route to the Menin Gate, to commemorate the last 100 days of WW1 and represent an entire generation  that  served  while  defending  their  country.

Robertsbridge  Royal  British  Legion  hopes  to  be  able  to  send  one  standard  and  one  wreath  bearer  to  represent  those  who  served  from  the  village  and  surrounding  areas.  The  cost  of  this  is  £1000  and  although  the  RBL  headquarters  have  informed  branches  that  they  can  take  this  money  from  branch  funds,  we  would  rather  use  branch  money  to  help  others  in  need,  in  the  many  ways  that  the  legion  does. Therefore,  our standard bearer Tony Wilson and ex Royal Marine Jerry  Hodgson,  are  preparing  for  a  sponsored  cycle  ride  of  26  miles  starting  from  Robertsbridge  Station  at  10  am  on  Sunday  22nd  of  July.   They  will  visit  the  war  memorials  of  Brightling,  Sedlescombe,  Staplecross,  Bodiam  and  finally  Robertsbridge.. 

If  you  can  donate  anything,  however  small , to  help  fund  the  trip  and  show  your  appreciation ,  it  would  be  gratefully  received.   If  you  fancy  it,  you  can  even  join  in  on  the  day!   Just  turn  up  with  a  bike  and  the  energy  you'll  need.

Many  thanks  in  advance.

Robertsbridge  Royal  British  Legion  deputy  standard  bearer,  Paul  Bielecki.
