The Royal Anglian Benevolent Fund

There is no charge for your entry to the Regimental Day, which is funded by the Royal Anglian Benevolent Fund. It is estimated to cost £10 per person to put on this prestigious event. There will be an opportunity for the Regimental family to donate generously at various points throughout the site towards the Royal Anglian Benevolent Fund. All donations would be gratefully received.

It is politely requested that no other collections take place.
The Royal Anglian Regiment Benevolent Fund exists to provide financial assistance to past and present members of our Regiment and its forebear Regiments, their spouses and dependents, when they find themselves in need, hardship or distress. If you find yourself in this situation get assistance for a RBL of SSAFA Caseworker who will pass the information to the Benevolence Committee in confidence.
