Support our troops

Not a week goes by without the sad news that one of our soldiers serving in Afghanistan has been killed.

While they are far from home - there are things we can do here in the UK to volunteer and show your support.  The Royal British Legion is one organisation that needs volunteers to continue its work to safeguard the welfare, interests and memory of those who are serving or who have served in the Armed Forces. 

 Their annual Poppy Appeal is the best known of their campaigns but they also need:

  • Volunteer caseworkers - working in the local community and giving advice and help on anything from state benefits to bereavement.
  • Volunteers to visit ex-service men and women who are housebound or in hospital.
  • People to take part in their  fundraising events - from Pedal to Paris to the London Marathon.
