We’re delighted that Colin and the rest of the Who Dares Wins team will be getting behind the Foundation and helping to spread our message far and wide.

Danii Molloy I am truly honoured to be a part of the Foundation. I endeavour to keep Lee’s memory alive, and to help bereaved families as & where I can.

Jason Wall I was honoured to accept the role of Trustee for the Foundation. I am passionate about helping keep Lee's legacy going, and I will support Lyn, Ian and the Foundation in whatever way I can to make sure that it is the best it can be.

Marie Cullen It’s a honour and a privilege to be asked to become a trustee of the Lee Rigby foundation. It’s so important to keep Lee’s memory alive. I Endeavour to do the best I can.

Gary Hobson Being a former fusilier myself and hearing of Lee Rigby's murder back in 2013, 5 minutes from where I lived at the time, I felt I needed to get involved and joined a group who were dedicated in getting a permanent memorial for Lee. After meeting with Lyn, Ian and family I felt I needed to get involved and help more.
After the family had set up the Foundation and a house had been renovated in Lee's name, I was invited by the family in 2017 to attend the Grand Opening of the Lee Rigby House in Staffordshire, the following year I found myself moving from London to Staffordshire and have never looked back since, helping out the foundation when and where I could. To now be asked to come on board as a Trustee to the Lee Rigby Foundation is an honour and something I'm very proud to take on and give my all.

Our Sponsors

We are proud to have Sarah Williams and Paul Newbon of The Princess Arms Pub in Dresden be one of our sponsors. 

Our fallen soldiers is something very close to our hearts and to the hearts of many people that use our pub, we based our first charity day around Lee Rigby, and got to know his family that we now class as good friends. Paul and myself could not think of anything more honourable than sponsoring the Lee Rigby foundation with all the amazing work that they do. Our very own memorial here at the pub has Lee's name on a memorial bench along with another local soldier Roman Parsons. We fully intend on working closely in the future with the foundation to raise funds as often as we can with different charity events and live music days.

What are our plans

We attempt to provide a support network for bereaved military families, veterans families and serving military families and be inclusive of recent terrorist actions.

We have found by experience that respite therapy in whatever form works for many families but must remember to cater for families including children so for therapy to work, facilities need to have entertainment.

Foreseeable plans include a network of static caravans on suitable sites thus turning respite into more of a holiday break but having entertainment supplied on site at no extra cost will be a big bonus to families.

Donations are essential to all charities, in our case for buying the static caravans, site fees etc. Without donations, this couldn’t happen, and development means we could have static caravans on numerous sites across the UK.

Our Retreats

We are proud to say that the first of our Retreat caravans is now available in Wales!
