Your bond with the Gurkhas can live on
For over 200 years, the Gurkhas have stood alongside us – taking a vow to defend Britain. Fighting with us to defend our shared values of freedom and justice. But now many are getting older, have complex medical needs and live in impoverished communities. With your generous support, our Welfare teams are working hard to ensure these brave veterans are able to live with dignity in Nepal.
Now you can make sure that bond lives on – even after you are no longer here.
With a gift in your Will, your commitment to Gurkha pensioners can continue for years, even when you’ve gone. Giving Gurkha pensioners the peace of mind they so deserve – to know that their loved ones will be supported long after they’ve gone.

Captain James Tainsh 1923 – 2015
Deborah shares what the Gurkhas meant to her father.
“My father served as a Captain in the 10th Princess Mary’s Own Gurkha Rifles during the Second World War out in Burma. Here he was wounded during a patrol in 1944 where all other members of the patrol were sadly killed. On his return he was transferred to the Black Watch but always remained very attached to the Gurkhas.
So much so that he supported The Gurkha Welfare Trust throughout his lifetime and left them a gift in his Will.”
