Welcome to the Nerja Branch of The Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Armed Forces charity and one of its largest membership organisations. Members get together through the network of branches and clubs all over the country and overseas to participate in social, fundraising and welfare activities.
Nerja Branch holds monthly lunch meetings at the Al Andalus Hotel, Maro, normally on the third Thursday of every month except July and August. and at the Pena Parda Restaurant in La Herradura, normally on the first Friday of every month except August and September.
The Nerja Branch monthly lunches provide a major contribution to our annual Poppy Appeal fund raising efforts, and everyone is invited, including non-members. We also of course welcome men and women of all ages to become members of the Legion, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not. Membership benefits include active involvement in the local community caring for ex-Service people, comradeship, access to special offers for insurance, travel and other services and the Legion magazine.
The Legion spends over £60 million every year providing a wide range of welfare assistance to the ex-Service community. From grant making to pensions and benefits advice; from counselling and job retraining to pilgrimages; and from home and hospital visits to the provision of full nursing care, the Legion is there to help.
Legion membership ensures that
- Remembrance is kept alive and that the sacrifices our brave Service men and women have made are never forgotten.
- The ex-Service community have a voice and that their concerns are brought to the public eye.

About The Royal British Legion
We provide financial, social and emotional care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces - past and present and their families. The Legion is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces and is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.
Founded in 1921, the Legion is not just about those who fought in the two World Wars of the last century, but also about those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy today.
