Welcome to the Cheltenham Branch of The Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Armed Forces charity and one of its largest membership organisations. Members get together through the network of branches and clubs all over the country and overseas to participate in social, fundraising and welfare activities.
The Cheltenham Branch office located at Parklands Community Centre, Wymans Road, Cheltenham GL52 PR, is open most Tuesdays and Fridays from 10.00am until 12.00 noon. Members meet on the first Thursday of each month (except August) at 7.30pm in the Albion House Social Club, North Street, Cheltenham.
The branch has some 120 members, most of whom have served in the armed forces and some who are still serving. As a member you will be able to give help to those of the ex-service community who are, perhaps, not as fortunate as we are. At present the Branch deal with about 100 cases per year.
Are you a member already? Do you have an email? Email the Membership Secretary who will ensure that you get the newsletters by email which will save an enormous amount of postage. Thank you.
Legion membership is open to everyone. If you have an interest in the objectives of the Legion and want to help and support for those who have served and their families, come and join us. We welcome men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not.
Membership also gives you companionship with others of like mind.
Membership ensures that;
- remembrance is kept alive and that the sacrifices our brave Service men and women have made are never forgotten.
- the members of the ex-Service community have a voice and that their concerns are brought to the public eye.
Becoming a member also provides the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of activities and events held locally, regionally and nationally throughout the year.
To join; call into your nearest branch or fill in a membership form
About The Royal British Legion
We provide financial, social and emotional care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces - past and present and their families. The Legion is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces and is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.
Founded in 1921, the Legion is not just about those who fought in the two World Wars of the last century, but also about those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy today.
