MP shows support for Royal British Legion

13th February 2019

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin offered her support to the Royal British Legion at an event in Westminster this week.

The Royal British Legion is the country’s largest Armed Forces charity, and provides welfare assistance for many thousands of veterans, serving personnel and their families.

Harriett – who is member of the local branch in Upton-upon-Severn - was briefed on work being carried out to help working-age members of the ex-service community as well as the long-term work delivering practical assistance through community outreach services and six care homes.

A network of 16 high street ‘pop-in’ centres has also been developed to make it easier for beneficiaries to seek help.

Harriett commented: “As a former Defence Minister and as a constituency MP, I have seen at close hand the work that the Royal British Legion does and I know that their activities extend well beyond the annual poppy day fund-raising helping thousands of veterans and their families.

“This was a useful chance to chat to the local managers about the work they do locally and to thank them for the great job they do throughout the year.”

Gail Walters, who is assistant director for the Royal British Legion in the Midlands, added: “I was delighted to see Harriett and we were grateful that she took the time to drop in.

“The Royal British Legion provides lifelong support for the Armed Forces community – serving men and women, veterans and their families. This latest parliamentary event offered a great opportunity to spread the word about the range of services we provide.”
