What is the Alec Lucas Memorial Trust?

The Alec Lucas Memorial Trust is a charitable organisation dedicated to the memory of Royal Marine Commando Alexander James Lucas (24), who was killed in action in Kajaki, Afghanistan on 24th November 2008.

The Alec Lucas Memorial Trust raises funds through a variety of events and distributes financial support to The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund and local sports charities.

Alec was a Royal Marine Commando and also a keen football player. The financial help that we give is therefore being distributed to areas that were close to his heart, and were a huge part of himself and his life. To read more about Alec, click here.
