ROYAL Regiment of Fusiliers chiefs have “saluted” six sterling supporters.

Two companies and four voluntary groups which have raised money or provided goods for soldiers’ “comforts” have been presented with certificates to mark their gestures. The handover of the certificates, signed by Colonel Brian Gorski, colonel of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (Lancashire), took place at the Fusilier Museum in Moss Street, Bury.

Recipients were Peel Lions, Bury Lions, Tottington High School, Regency Care Home, based in Whitefield, Radcliffe Rotary Club and Barclays Bank Manchester.

The rotary and lions clubs had given cash donations while the other organisations had helped in collecting and supplying goods for soldiers serving overseas. Barclays Bank provided items worth £3,000.

Lieutenant Colonel Mike Glover, regimental secretary Lancashire for the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, said: “The framed certificates were to say thank you from the regiment to these people for everything they have done.”
