Who do we help?
 

The Royal British Legion was formed in 1921 to assist with the welfare of serving and ex service personnel of all branches of the services and their dependents. Most of the people requiring assistance were young people in their twenties and thirties who are today's pensioners and once again require our assistance. They need help with pension rights, help to retain an active life in their own homes and assistance with many other welfare matters.

 

It's a big misconception that you have to be a member of the Royal British Legion to benefit from their services, all you need to be, is currently serving, ex service or a dependent of someone who is. All we ask is that you let us know about you, we cannot help unless we know who you are.

 

Unfortunately we are now back to the same problem with our service personnel being maimed and some paying the ultimate sacrifice. Another misconception is that the Royal British Legion only supports the elderly, but with today's conflicts we have many young wives and families whose breadwinner is either not going to return to his/her normal job or, in the worst case, not return at all.

 

We need your help to make sure we are there for all the people, young and elderly so that they feel they are not alone and forgotten.

 

As a charity and one of the UK’s largest membership organisations and recognised as custodians of Remembrance we rely on public and commercial support to raise the many millions we require to deliver our services. One way we do this is with the annual Poppy Appeal.



   2015 Newbury Poppy Appeal

 

   Membership 

Yet again the the people of Newbury dug deep into their pockets during the Poppy Appeal. Coins and notes in tins during the collection fortnight totalled over £55,000.

Without this generous support, by individuals and businesses, the Royal British Legion would be unable to continue with its vital welfare and benevolent work. With sad regularity we see and read about the consequences of young service men and women put in danger on our behalf. No matter what our politics or particular views on any conflict, people recognise that when harm results we have an obligation to care for those affected and their dependants. This covenant is at the core of what the British Legion is all about.


You don't have to wait till Poppy Appeal time to make a donation. We need your support all year. There are lots of ways to give - online, direct debit etc. And don't forget to sign up for Gift Aid!
