Charity: Thank You From The Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion is a charity that’s very close to our hearts and among those we support regularly.
We’ve received a generous letter of thanks with a reminder of how our support, and that of others, makes a difference.
Last year, more than 30,000 members of the Armed Forces community received help from the charity.
Admiral Nurses stepped in to help Dorothy when she became her husband’s carer. Angus, who is 76, had been in the Army and is now retired. He has bipolar disorder, vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s. The RBL’s Admiral Nurse team helped organise financial help with moving costs when the couple had to leave their rental property at short notice. They also taught Dorothy the skills she needs to care for Angus.
They also helped Emmanual Akor who was medically discharged from the Army after serving six years in the 1st Battalion the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment. He needed help regarding his young son who is acutely autistic and needs 24/7 care at home. With help from the charity’s financial support team, he was able to get the right care and disability support in place.
This year’s Poppy Appeal launches on 27th October and we will be proud Poppy Supporters once again. To find out how you can get involved, visit: https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/
