How your donations help
Why donate to The Royal British Legion during the Poppy Appeal?
By donating to The Royal British Legion, you’re helping us to help those in need within the Armed Forces community. We provide support for members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families.
In 2016, £146.9million raised through the Poppy Appeal and all other fundraising was spent on the Legion's operational services. We use the donations we receive to make sure we help the Armed Forces community in a variety of ways:
Welfare - Through a range of services, we ensure that members of the Armed Forces community receive the support they need, from rehabilitation courses to careers advice for those leaving Service.
Remembrance - We are committed to helping the nation understand the importance of Remembrance to make sure sacrifices from conflicts old and new are never forgotten.
Campaigns - We campaign to improve the lives of our Service people by lobbying Government on issues relating to the Armed Forces.
Membership - Legion membership is a network of Service personnel, veterans and civilians who care about our cause. Our members volunteer and fundraise to help us deliver even more support.
Fundraising - We fundraise all year round to make sure we can continue to support the Armed Forces community, for as long as we are needed.
