The Royal British Legion is one of the UK’s best known and highly respected charities.  Its principle concern is the welfare of serving and ex-Service people and their dependants, with around 10.5 million people in the UK eligible for that support.

Service personnel returning from Afganistan need your help more than ever.  Please give generously this year and make it the best year ever or even join the branch.  The fee for joining is £11 per year and you don’t have to be ex service to be a member.  2011 will be a special year – the 90th Anniversary of the Royal British Legion – watch out for many events local and national to celebrate this event.
