Colonel RLC Reserves, Colonel Gillian Wilkinson QVRM VR commented: What a privilege to be able to run alongside WO1 (RSM) Muir for the final leg of his epic running challenge. His huge efforts, sustained every day over the last six months, and his commitment to raising funds for RLC Benevolence are truly inspirational. As a member of the Benevolence committee, I see how crucial the financial support can be. When our people face tough times, such support can transform their situation and improves lives. Well done WO1 Muir! Quite something for a man who says he doesn’t even like running!”

Corps SM Reserves, WO1 Amanda Ward added:It was a pleasure to have taken part in the final stage of WO1 (RSM) Muir’s fundraising journey. What a contribution he has made to the RLC Benevolence – he is an inspirational demonstration of selfless commitment that will benefit so many in times of need.”

RLC personnel from BATUK have been helping to make donations of food and books to Hope and Homes Recreation Centre, a local orphanage home to 56 children in Kenya. Hope and Homes first became a registered recreation centre in 2011 by Suzanne Wangiru. Suzanne created the centre in order to rehabilitate street children, as well as orphans and young girls that have been rescued form early marriages. Cpl Shannon Stevens who is currently on detachment from 13AASR, commented on her experience visiting this fundamental centre: “When we entered the Centre, we were taken by surprise as there were more children than we had imagined there would be. We helped to distribute food, drawing books and reading books and the children were ecstatic. It was a surreal experience at Hope and Homes, full of differing emotions, but it was definitely a great opportunity for the members of CSS 2nd Line to engage with the community creating a better working relationship with BATUK.”Major R Crane MBE RLC, SO2 CSS BATUK commented: “Witnessing the delight on the kids’ faces when they received the books and clothes that had been donated by friends and families across UK was very humbling. There are so many children in need and every little helps.” #BritishArmyLogistics #WeSustain #WeAreTheRLC ... See MoreSee Less
