    Why run for us?

    The Royal British Legion was born out of the First World War, fighting for those who had given so much, and providing welfare and comradeship to millions.

    The last 18 months has impacted us all, and the people who rely on us for support need us more than ever.

    As we mark our centenary, we celebrate the return of our Poppy Appeal collectors in local communities.  By supporting the Poppy Appeal you ensure that those who have served are being looked after no matter what challenges they, and the country faces.

    Now more than ever, every poppy counts - sign up today
