British Legion Rides Again

British Legion Rides Again

Martin Arnold are once again proud to be supporting the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) with their Ride with a Veteran over the weekend of 16th to 18th July.

This will be our team’s third event with the RBLI. In 2018 and 2019 we completed the trip from the RBLI’s home in Aylesford to Ypres but complications in 2020 meant that our planned ride was unable to go ahead so our team is eager to get back into the saddle. Due to the ongoing restrictions, the RBLI made the decision to change the destination to Meriden near Birmingham, the site of the National Cycling Memorial. The distance will still be 150 miles, cycled over 2 days, ending with a wreath laying ceremony at the National Cycling Memorial.

We will be riding with people with a wide range of abilities including a student from King’s School in Rochester, a Chelsea Pensioner as well as younger veterans, serving soldiers, RBLI Trustees and many corporate and individual sponsors.

The RBLI are a fantastic charity that Martin Arnold are very pleased to be working with, as they provide much needed support, helping veterans to find employment and careers after leaving the Forces. The RBLI offer back to work support, housing and care and general support for Veterans and the Armed Forces community.

The previous rides have been extremely fun, challenging and thought provoking and, most importantly, have helped to raise an incredible amount of money to help fund the vital support that the RBLI provides. This year the team will once again be led by our Director, Tom Hopkins, who will be joined by colleagues Chris Los, David Powell and a friend of Martin Arnold, Daren Nathan.

We hope to continue our fundraising as we have previous years, so would value any support that you are able to give by visiting and donating on the link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/rbliteamma21
