This is the time of year to think about our Armed Forces and the demands on them and the services provided by the Royal British Legion which are as important now as they have always been.
It is of great comfort to our serving military personnel to know that families will be taken care of, in any event,
due to the nature of their service.
The Royal British Legion provides for the needs of these families, along with the needs of the serving and ex-service men and women - beneficiaries are growing annually due to recent conflicts.
These are very precarious times and your support is invaluable - please give what you can to support this very worthy cause.
If you would like to help in a practical way and are over 16 years of age you can email volunteersupport@british
legion.org.uk for more information.
