WHO WE ARE
Just Rifles began with solicitor Bryan Fugler reserving two seats in the box at Spurs for every home game, specifically for Riflemen and women. He did this in memory of family friend Lance Corporal Thomas Keogh who was shot and killed in action in Sangin, Afghanistan. Amongst those who joined Bryan, a conversation about the everyday needs of ex-soldiers began. Bryan wanted to do more to help, and the seed of the Just Rifles idea was born.
HOW WE HELP
We are proud to say that Just Rifles has become established as the military charity with the personal touch. From household items and bespoke sporting equipment, to supporting former soldiers retrain and find employment when they enter civvy street. Just Rifles is here to plug the gaps in one-off, everyday needs as well as long term support so former soldiers that have experienced mental or physical trauma can begin to rebuild their lives
A nine man team of Rifleman are to complete a 24hr Sparring Contest on the mentioned date - only stopping or change overs with One member of the team in the ring at any given time
