Just a quick thread to wish everyone a fantastic xmas season and a great New Year.

Every year has its ups and downs for us on a personal basis Im sure, but on the whole we have a lot to be thankful for when we look at the bigger picture dont we.

What we have achieved
A huge thanks to everyone for supporting the Rebel Legion throughout this last year....whether at events or online...I hope that you've had fun and enjoyed our activities as a club. There's a lot more to come in 2008 believe me!

A big thanks also to the command guys Steve, DaveATM, Kev and Nige, who work their socks off relentlessly in the background for the club, so that everyone can turn up at well run events and enjoy the fun without problem. We are all 'volunteers' and I am sure that we are all thankful for their efforts to support the club.

You'll be pleased to know that you all helped in some shape or fashion raise over £19,000/26,500 Euros for registered UK charities this year! We may not be a biggest club in the UK, but what we do we do well. There are a lot of people out there thankful and benefitting from what we have contributed to across our communities, that without our contribution may not have done so. That helps define why we do what we do and our approach at RL UK. Its good to see that with so many members across the country, that the South is now taking off for events. Thanks to all those active people who are making the effort. Well done to you all - much appreciated! Lets keep up the great work into 2008 and beyond.

Supporting those in need
As most of you know, Im not at all the 'religious type', but I do sincerely believe in celebrating this time of year for other reasons, as an opportunity to look back retrospectively at what we have achieved and positively to welcome in the New Year to come with a renewed enthusiasm.

As we are all busy and are often miles apart I'd love to send you all a seasons greetings card.....but what I'd like to do (or encourage you to do too) instead is to use the money that I would have spent in postage or on cards to people and donate it to www.starlight.org.uk , who will benefit much more than the value of a piece of card that will end up in our bins after the New Year. The money that Starlight recieve is always gratefully recieved and as you all know, put to fantastic use to brighten the lives of seriously ill or terminally ill children. If you feel the same, then I'd encourage you to donate to them by << clicking here >>

Here's to a great 2008 guys and gals - May the Force be with us all!!
