Field Of Remembrance - Westminster Abbey


The leaflet enclosed with the Autumn (August) edition of The Gallipolian set out arrangements for the placing of crosses and other emblems of remembrance in the Gallipoli Association Plot (No. 94) at the Field of Remembrance.  This referred to the plot being in place by the afternoon of Monday 7 November.  In fact, the ‘Field’ will not be available for the laying of crosses etc. until the morning of Tuesday 8 November.

Remembrance Sunday: 13 November 2016


The Gallipoli Association has been invited to participate as one of the marching contingents in this year’s Remembrance Day Parade.  This is now a significant and memorable event in the Association’s calendar; our involvement highlights the significance of the Gallipoli campaign and more importantly recognises and remembers all those who served in it.

Increased security measures will be in place this year and members wishing to take part in the parade should complete the form enclosed with the Autumn edition of The Gallipolian and return it to the address given on the form no later than 9 September 2016.  [Please do not send the form to the Association’s Mailbox 630 address] Tickets will be allocated on a first come-first served basis. Those applying for tickets should be aware that they are likely to be standing in Whitehall for at least 1½ hours prior to the March Past, then marching for a distance of over a mile, possibly in inclement weather.


Volunteers Wanted


CURRENTLY ADVERTISED - FINANCE MANAGER

The Gallipoli Association is looking to fill the new role of Finance Manager for the Association.  

The Gallipoli Association is continuing to grow and as a result, the Treasurer is requiring assistance in undertaking the finance role.  The Association is inviting applications and expressions of interest for the role of Finance Manager.  This represents an interesting opportunity to become involved in the running of the Association.  All roles and functions undertaken by trustees and sub committees within the Association are performed on a voluntary basis. 

This is a responsible position as the incumbent will be a bank signatory and will undertake, and be responsible for, a great part of the day to day finance function.  Accordingly, the Finance Manager must be of the highest moral character and be sufficiently diligent and experienced to ensure all finance functions are maintained.   The Finance Manager will report to the Treasurer specifically but is also responsible to the trustees of the Association.

A full job description is available and interested parties should contact the Treasurer, Vicki Genrich, at treasurer@gallipoli-association.org should they wish to discuss the opportunity.  

Applications should include a full C.V. and details of two personal references which should be sent to treasurer@gallipoli-association.org.


Gift Aid

As The Gallipoli Association became a registered charity on 3 February 2014, we have applied successfully to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to be registered for Gift Aid. This means that for every £1.00 you pay to The Gallipoli Association, we can reclaim 25 pence back from HMRC. This costs nothing for our members but provides additional income for The Gallipoli Association.

The Gallipoli Association is eligible to reclaim these amounts from HMRC if:

1. An Association member pays UK tax equal to or greater than the amount The Gallipoli Association can claim. For example, for an annual subscription of £25.00, the Gallipoli Association can reclaim £6.25 from HMRC provided the member pays at least £6.25 income or capital gains tax to HMRC. If you donate or subscribe to other charities, please bear in mind that they also may be registered for Gift Aid and therefore, your tax paid to HMRC must be greater than the Gift Aid amounts that those charities can reclaim in total from HMRC.

2. The Gallipoli Association holds an authorised declaration from that member.

If you are a UK tax payer and Note 1 above applies to you, we would appreciate your completion of a Gift Aid Declaration form. Once completed, please send to:

 The Gallipolian Archive

A complete archive of Gallipolian journals, from edition 1 through to 134 (1969-2014), is currently in progress of creation, and will be available to members soon. The collection will feature a fully hyperlinked index, allowing the relevant PDF file to be opened directly from the index entry. Files can also be downloaded for viewing locally on this website.

 


 Association e-Newsletter

The Association e-Newsletter is going from strength to strength since its initial launch in March 2010. It has now over 1200 registered members for whom we have an email address. We trust that this proves to be a useful addition to our communications, and comments are welcomed. In the future we are planning to keep running the e-newsletter, so watch this space, or rather your mailbox!

Important Note: If you currently do not receive the e-Newsletter, and would like to, please update your membership details on the website, or email webmaster@gallipoli-association.org
