Welcome to the Bredon Branch of The Royal British Legion
I doubt that those who give to charities have in mind that their
donations will simply sit in bank savings accounts earning less
interest than the current rate of inflation.
Accordingly, Bredon Branch of the RBL has recently
given away a substantial portion of its "savings" for immediate
use, as follows:
- Local Poppy Appeal: £100.
- RBL Worcester County Welfare Fund: £1,000.
- National Memorial Arboretum (NMA): £1,000.
The County Welfare Fund includes Bredon and its surrounds; it
deals with the here and now, and does what it says on the tin - the
RBL's enormous, ongoing help to the modern generation of ex-Service
men and women is often overlooked.
The NMA will use our donation to help fund the new Centre of
Remembrance, shortly to be built there. This will include a
Remembrance Learning Centre, which will allow the NMA to more than
double its work with the some 4,000 schoolchildren who visit each
year. (Mike Brumage, Secretary/Treasurer, Bredon RBL)
