Legion membership renewals move online

Legion members now have the option to renew their membership online

We’ve introduced new ways to collect payment for Royal British Legion memberships to ensure our members can pay in the way that best suits them. Options for payment now include:

  •          Credit or Debit card
  •          Bank transfer
  •          PayPal
  •          By cash via PayPoint
  •          Continuous payment authority (CPA)
  •          Direct debit
  •          Cheque

We’ve made these changes for a number of reasons.

To comply with the latest legislation: Changing the way we collect member data means we are complying and meeting with the latest legislation to ensure data safety as well as adhering to the auditing requirements of the Charity Commission.

To make it easier to get in touch: Sending information electronically is not only more efficient, it saves the Legion quite a lot of money. So by providing us with an email address, we can keep members up to date with all the latest Legion news.

To open up our membership to a whole new audience: By introducing these new ways to pay, we’re hoping to attract younger members – an important part of our future.

While change is important, we’ve taken on board feedback from our members to make sure The Royal British Legion is still accessible for everyone. Members will still be able to pay by cash via PayPoint and annual branch gatherings are an essential part of branch life that is here to stay, ensuring our members can still meet up face-to-face.

Members can go to www.britishlegion.org.uk/renewals to complete their annual membership payment, change their payment method or to update their personal details (eg change of address). Once payment has been processed and accepted, the new membership card will be sent by post.
