Legion in the Community (LIC) is a programme instigated at branch & county level to give exciting new opportunities for everyone to get involved in Legion work within their local communities.
The aims are to raise public awareness of what the Legion does in local communities, to promote the Legion as an active membership organisation and to invite local people to get involved with welfare and membership activities of the Legion.
After a successful pilot scheme, Legion in the Community is now fully incorporated into the Legion way of life. New publicity materials and information about the Legion have been produced and made available to Counties, Branches & volunteers.
Today, Legion in the Community continues to grow and evolve with more and more Counties, Branches, Members and Volunteers raising awareness of The Royal British Legion through various events and activities such as:
- County Shows
- Local Fetes/Fairs
- Open Evenings
- Veterans Day (now Armed Forces Day)
- attending Carnivals, Military Air Shows & Military Open Days.
Plus many, many more ……
How to get involved
If you would like to get involved in any of the Legion in the Community activities, you can! We are always looking for new members and volunteers to get involved in our fundraising and welfare work.
Alternatively, you may be interested in getting involved in one of the many Legion in the Community events or social activities held throughout the year.
Whether you are Serving, ex-Service or have no links with the Armed Forces family, The Royal British Legion always gives new members and volunteers a warm and friendly welcome.
