Legion in the Community

The Royal British Legion plays an active role in the local community, and we rely on the help of our members to carry out our work in their local areas. There are many ways people can help and become involved, and it is essential to our work for the serving and ex-Service community.

To raise public awareness of what the Legion does in our community and encourage more people to get involved with the welfare and membership activities of the Legion, we participate in various events and activities such as:

  • County Shows
  • Local Fetes/Fairs
  • Open Evenings
  • Concerts
  • Armed Forces Day (previously Veterans Day)
  • attending Carnivals, Military Air Shows & Military Open Days.

If you have an event planned then let County HQ know all about it. The 'Legion in the Community' (LIC) scheme is a perfect opportunity to publicise your Royal British Legion event.

Get in touch with the County Office on channington@britishlegion.org.uk  if you want to know more about 'Legion in the Community'. LIC briefings can be delivered at your Group or Branch Meetings.

Check out our News and Events section for details of planned events.

How to get involved

If you would like to get involved in any of the Legion in the Community activities, you can! We are always looking for new members and volunteers to get involved in our fundraising and welfare work.

Alternatively, you may be interested in getting involved in one of the many Legion in the Community events or social activities held throughout the year.

Whether you are Serving, ex-Service or have no links with the Regular Armed Forces or Reserves, The Royal British Legion always gives new members and volunteers a warm and friendly welcome.
