1LI Reunion & Raffle

The 1LI Reunion & Raffle is organised and run by the 1LI Association, it takes place on the Friday afternoon/evening of the main Light Infantry Reunion in Shrewsbury each June and is a very well attended event. It welcomes all those that have served in 1LI at any stage during their service, including their family members plus all those that support the battalion and it's association.

We would encourage as many of you as possible to take part and to come and join us on the day/evening, but it is just one part of what is a very special weekend that brings together ALL Light Infantrymen from the counties and further a field.

This event also enables us to hold an annual raffle to ensure that membership to the 1LI Association is free for all those that served in the battalion, but it also allows us to purchase and send Poppy Wreaths to every 1LI funeral both now and in the future thanks to your support.

The association aims to have a Title Sponsor for the Annual Raffle so that all associated costs of running it are covered and that 100% of the  proceeds from the ticket sales is placed back into the association. As well as a Raffle Title Sponsor we also seek each year sponsors for the three main prizes, Engraved Decanter Tray Set plus two Bronze Statues. We plan up to 18 months ahead and we would like to hear from potential sponsors who would wish to support our battalion association and you can get in touch by using the e-mail at the bottom of this page. We also welcome additional prizes for the raffle each year and should you wish to donate a prize or even a cash prize then please send Doug Hosking an e-mail at your earliest convenience.

The 1LI Reunion & Raffle information will be placed below each year and details of the main Light Infantry Reunion and the veterans parade will be placed on the Shrewsbury page.

The 1LI Association would like to encourage you to support both events so that they remain for many years to come.

Thank you.

Timings & Further Details

Open from TBC

Due to how busy the town is on the Friday night PLEASE book your taxis for departure very early on in the evening, or even before you

arrive, to ensure that you get back to your accommadation at your desired time.

Raffle Tickets & Prizes

Raffle tickets are £1 each and come in books of five and they will also be available to purchase online via PayPal for the very first time

which we hope will help to increase sales, spread out the cost of purchasing them and will ease some of our workload in the weeks leading up to the raffle itself. We still expect to sell many of our tickets on the actual day thanks to all of our helpers, but as the 1LI Association, along with all the LI associations, has to be self funding it is very important that we continue to look at ways of promoting and increasing our ticket sales so that we may secure our future and meet our aims.

PayPal Ticket Procedure

After you purchase your tickets we will receive a transaction receipt detailing your full name, address and the amount of tickets purchased. We will then allocate ticket numbers to that transaction and will e-mail those ticket numbers to you asap, so please keep a note of them or save the e-mail.

Your full name and postcode will be added to the actual ticket stubs that you have purchased and they will then be placed in the raffle drum prior to the start of the event.

Should you have any questions, please e-mail us.
