Christmas appeal

Make a donation

The men and women of the Armed Forces put themselves on the line for us – for you, me and our families – every single day.

We are committed to supporting serving and ex-serving personnel and their families when they need us. And for many people, the time they need us most over the Christmas period.

Last December and January our team answered 23,439 calls, emails and live chats from people who turned to the Legion in their hour of need.

Your support changes lives

Will you support our Armed Forces community this Christmas by giving a donation?

When Liam was serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, his mum lived in constant fear of someone coming and knocking on the door to tell her he wasn’t coming home.

It’s never easy for the families at home when their loved ones are deployed in active Service.

That’s why it’s so important that the Legion is here not only for serving and ex-serving personnel, but for their families, too.

When Liam fell seriously ill on deployment in Afghanistan, we were here for him as he made his recovery in hospital. We also paid for his dad to travel the length of the country, so that he could visit him too.

Then, a few years later, when he was medically discharged, we gave him the emotional support he needed during this difficult time, as well as offering practical help securing employment and housing.

You support means that we can honour the service people like Liam to make sure they never have to face difficulties alone.

We are committed to supporting serving and ex-serving personnel and their families when they need us. And for many people, the time they need us most is at Christmas.
