Description

We are the nation's de facto custodian of Remembrance, ensuring that people remember those who have given their lives for the freedom we enjoy. We are responsible for the Two Minute Silence on Remembrance Sunday and 11th November. We also organise the annual Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, and assist with the march past at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday.
The Legion is the major voice for serving and ex-Service people, running successful campaigns such as Honour the Covenant and Return to Rationing. Other issues such war pensions and compensation, assistance for bereaved families and housing issues are covered in our current "Time to do your bit" campaign.
We will continue to press for change as long as the needs of veterans and their dependants remain unrecognised.


Company description
Our welfare work continues to expand and diversify as the welfare needs of the population evolve. The current number of potential beneficiaries for our Poppy Support services is estimated at 9.5 million. The mission of The Royal British Legion is to reach out to the 500, 000 who we believe are in the greatest need. Here are some other examples of how we make a difference to those in the Armed Forces family.
It is one of the best known and supported campaigns in the calendar and each year the nation shows its support for the Legion's work by giving generously to the Poppy Appeal. We're well on the way to reaching our target of £36 million for our 2010 appeal but donations are needed all through the year so please give generously. The Royal British Legion Weekly Lottery is a great new way of supporting the vital work of the Legion and having the chance to win one of our 100 weekly cash prizes.
And there's a quarterly bonus draw too!
