Fundraising

The Kent and Sharpshooters Yeomanry Association is a registered charity and exists solely through voluntary donations from members together with income from investments that our predecessors made when the SYA was established as a Gin and Tears Club in 1943. We also benefit from legacies that World War 2 veterans have made through their wills and other income generated from the sale of Sharpshooter merchandise such as Whisky and Champagne.

The annual voluntary subscription contributes towards the cost of the production of the annual journal and other charitable work including sending parcels to those Sharpshooters deployed on operations. These latter are very much appreciated by the serving soldiers and we are always looking to boost our funds to enable us to do this vital and morale lifting work. We also support the families of those deployed by holding a variety of family functions that partners and their children can come to. All members and friends of the Association are strongly encouraged to complete a Gift Aid Form in respect of any subscription or donation that they make. The Form only has to be completed once and can be downloaded. Once complete the form should be sent to the Treasurer who will claim back the standard rate of income tax thus multiplying your donation by 20%.
