Royal British Legion

In 2023, we took the first step in organising a new Charity partnership with the Royal British Legion (RBL), often simply known as the British Legion. While this is being set up, we have spent little time in starting to fundraise for this amazing cause! RBL is a British charity providing financial, social, and emotional support to members and veterans of the British Armed Forces, their families, and dependents. Founded in 1921, the organisation emerged after the First World War in response to the needs of ex-servicemen and women who faced various hardships upon returning to civilian life.

It provides a comprehensive range of welfare services to enhance the physical and mental well-being of its members, including aid for injured veterans, financial guidance, and housing support. The RBL is also prominent in national Remembrance services through its iconic Poppy Appeal, raising funds for its charitable activities. Beyond welfare, the Legion actively advocates for service members’ and veterans’ rights and interests, influencing public policy and legislation. Additionally, it nurtures a strong community spirit among its members through local branches, clubs, and various events. The organisation also marks its presence by commemorating significant military events and anniversaries, underlining its commitment to honouring and supporting those who have served in the British Armed Forces.

We look forward to our future work together!

Why the RBL matters to us

National Business Development Manager – Matthew Hall
‘The Royal British Legion holds significance to me as an ex-Royal Navy Warfare Specialist. It plays a crucial role in supporting the broader Armed Forces community in the United Kingdom. Whether you have a personal connection to the military or not, the Legion’s work directly impacts the lives of veterans like myself, serving personnel, and their families. By providing essential services such as financial assistance, housing support, and mental health programs, the Legion contributes to the well-being and livelihoods of those who have dedicated themselves to serving the nation.

Compliance, Commercial & Operations Manager – Victoria Coleman
‘The RBL is a cause incredibly close to my heart as I am from a military family – on both sides! My parents were both part of the Army’s Royal Logistics Corp and my Grandfather was in the 11th Hussars regiment and is currently a member of the RBL in Dover. I have seen first hand how the RBL’s hard work and dedication can change the lives of its members. Since being an active member of the RBL my Grandad has gained a close circle of friends and a lot of confidence! It’s very clear to see how happy the additional sociability makes him.’
