The Gurkha Brigade Association represents all the Regimental Associations of Britain’s Brigade of Gurkhas. Veterans and serving, and all ranks, anyone who has served with the Brigade of Gurkhas is a member. Our role is to foster comradeship and welfare, to preserve the heritage and history of the Brigade of Gurkhas and to sponsor and support Association or Brigade events. We work very closely with Headquarters the Brigade of Gurkhas, the Gurkha Welfare Trust and the Gurkha Museum, for the benefit of our soldiers and ex-servicemen. We provide information on relevant news and events, in UK and abroad, as well as help and advice for those starting a second career outside the Brigade
On the 8th of April Colour Sergeant Nabin Rai and Sergeant Shankar Magar both from The First Battalion, The Royal Gurkha Rifles along with other team members currently serving with Mission Ready Training Centre (MRTC) organised a 5km Doko Race & Fun Run' at Bassingbourn Barracks, Royston, Cambridgeshire.
The event was bought together to generate support and raise funds for the Gurkha Welfare Trust (GWT) and Unit Welfare MRTC. The event gave a rare opportunity for others outside of the Brigade of Gurkhas to experience carrying a Doko on a run, and for the team to talk and share knowledge of Gurkha and Nepalese culture and history.
