Coventry Building Society
We are delighted to be supported by Coventry Building Society which has so far raised £14.7 million for the Legion.
Every year since 2008, Coventry Building Society has made a donation to The Royal British Legion based on how much members have saved in their Poppy accounts.
On 27 October 2017, Coventry Building Society launched its first-ever Poppy Fixed ISA and announced the return of its popular Poppy Bond.
When staff at Coventry Building Society saw how their donations made a difference, they wanted to contribute more. That’s why they made us their Corporate Charity in 2012. As well as the Poppy accounts, the Coventry now also supports us through fundraising events and by volunteering staff time at one of our care homes, Fields of Remembrance, supermarket collections and City Poppy Days.
Mark Parsons, Chief Executive of the Coventry, said: "We’re delighted to have continued our relationship with The Royal British Legion. Having the Legion as the Society's lead charity means we’re able to support them even more, not only through our donations but also through our staff fundraising activities and community events.
“So far we’ve raised over £14.7 million for the Legion. Our donation helps this great organisation make a difference to the lives of serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families. Its work is unending and we’ll continue to provide our support for as long as possible.”
Claire Rowcliffe, Director of Fundraising at The Royal British Legion, said: “This longstanding partnership continues to deliver much needed help to serving and ex-serving members of Britain’s Armed Forces and their families. Coventry Building Society has raised more than £14.7 million for the Royal British Legion since 2008. And its employees have donated more than 1,500 hours of their time with us since 2012. It is a great relationship which supports many of our services, including our vital rehabilitation centres for injured servicemen and women.”
