The Regiment Support Service is non-profit company limited by guarantee (Company No. 7323840).
What are our objectives?
- To provide financial assistance towards production and distribution of regimental diaries.
- To provide financial assistance in the form of a donation that is given direct to a regiment and its trustees annually.
The regimental diary acts as a reward to all officers and soldiers who donate a days pay to the Regimental Association which helps serving and old soldiers who fall on hard times. The remaining diaries can then be sold to the general public as a way of raising extra funds for the benevolence and welfare fund.
How do we do this?
We contact businesses from across the United Kingdom and ask if they would like to help sponsor the production of the regimental diary. The amount of sponsorship is entirely at the discretion of the sponsor. In return for sponsoring the diary a business will receive a regimental certificate thanking them for their support which is signed by the Colonel of the Regiment or the Commander Household Cavalry.
How is the money spent?
The money raised through sponsorship is used to cover the cost of production of the diary and also the cost of generating the funds. As a non profit company any money that remains at the end of our financial year is divided equally and donated directly to the regimental charities of each regiment.
Proceeds from the sale of the diary are channelled to charitable causes decided by the trustees of each particular regiment.
Over recent years a lot of businesses in the United Kingdom have been contacted by unscrupulous companies with requests for advertising and sponsorship in bogus publications. If you have received a request for sponsorship and you are unsure about the authenticity of the request then please contact us on 0845 519 7081.
Alternatively, you may clarify the authenticity of your request directly with the regiment on the contact details below:
