which has been set up in order to provide a running update on issues, events and activities associated with fund raising on behalf of the Regiment.
The Irish Guards Appeal was launched in 2010 in order to coincide with the Battalion deployment to Afghanistan in a bid to provide a boost to existing funds which were coming under increasing pressure to sustain the growing level of requests for assistance in light of recent operational campaigns. The response to the appeal from the outset was overwhelming and demonstrated how effectively a family Regiment can pull together from across the entire spectrum of their network of friends and supporters.
With the Appeal having sown the seed of fund raising awareness the intention is to now continue with an ongoing series of events and activities in order to maintain a steady flow of income which can in turn be utilised for the benefit of Irish Guardsmen who are in need both now and in the future.
It is hoped this site will give a flavour of how this is being achieved in addition to providing useful information to anyone wishing to either make a donation or arrange an activity.
