This year the RBLI is celebrating 100 years of delivering vital support to vulnerable veterans & people with disabilities. Right now for every person they can help, there’s one they can’t. That’s why they need people like us. – With more funding, they can grow their Centenary Village and support more people. They enable the people they support to take steps towards independence.
The Centenary Village is a significant investment for the future of ex-Armed Forces personnel throughout the UK. This will provide further crucial housing and welfare, helping veterans who come to RBLI with no money, no job and nowhere to live. It can provide them with a place to call home. They now house more than 300 veterans and their families through family housing, independent-living, a high-dependency care home and emergency accommodation.
So on Friday 12th July 2019 James and many others will be taking part in the RBLI Centenary Bike Ride 2019. They will cycle for 2 days from Aylesford in Kent, through the historic Great War battlefields of France and Belgium. On the second day they will finish in Ypres, at the Menin Gate, in time for the Last Post. The daily mileage will be approx. 75 miles.
