A couple of our Branch members have hand made some beautiful hampers and are now ready to be delivered to our more elderly members just in time for Christmas! Well done and thank you as they look amazing! #royalbritishlegion#christmashampers
Couldn’t give a monkeys what my face looks like, when Dame Patricia Routledge shouts at you across the dinner table ‘I hear you’re doing marvellous things’, you know you’re doing alright and you’ll probably make it out this life ok. The undeserved charm and credit I’ve had from the great legends I’ve met this evening is completely overwhelming I could cry. What a magnificent evening I’ve had ❣️
Ever wonder how Christmas is celebrated at our care homes? Last year, we spent the day with staff and residents at Galanos House to see how they celebrate Christmas. 🎅🏻 Events included art class, choir, and dancing! 💃🏻 Swipe left to explore some pictures of the day. ⬆ Visit our webiste via the link in our bio and 🔎 search for 'Christmas in a Care Home'. #veteran#charity#care#xmas#christmas#dementia#royalbritishlegion

Another kind donation by @tactical_tea
After a convo with the team about the charity walk I’m planning, they kindly offered to keep me firmly supplied with quality tea throughout the journey, and let’s face it we all know how much a good brew is the difference between a morale boost and a moral drop..
Arrived this morning so will be packed away shortly ready for my rbl walk.
Special thanks to the veteran owned @tactical_tea team for their contribution 👌🏻👍🏻 🇬🇧 🇬🇧.
An interactive poppy design, created in commemoration of the First World War centenary, is now on display in reception at Waverley Borough Council’s offices in Godalming.
Commissioned by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women's Association, who raise money for the Poppy Appeal each year, the hanging banner was designed by UCA Farnham second-year Fine Art student Eleanor McLean.
Members of the public are encouraged to write their own personal messages of Remembrance in the poppy leaves, together with a donation to the Royal British Legion.
The banner was on display outside Sainsbury's in Farnham for signing on 3 November and then displayed outside Farnham Town Council offices from 9-30 November.
Its final destination is the British Legion Garden of Remembrance at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

Our Public Services students have been presented with a certificate of thanks by the @royalbritishlegion after helping to raise over £12,000 for the charity during the Poppy Appeal this year. They worked with volunteers at Ashton Arcades and local supermarkets to sell poppies and engage with shoppers. What a proud moment for them.
