The Curry Rivel, Fivehead and Drayton Branch of The Royal British Legion (RBL) needs you!
We are currently 76 members strong, but our Branch is in need of more members to maintain a strong spirit of this Charity. Anyone can join!
We welcome all supporters of the Armed Forces community. You do not need to have an Armed Forces background to become a member. You can support the Charity by being a member and, if possible, by volunteering to help the Service personnel in need after serving their Country to help keep it safe.
The RBL is the largest Armed Forces charity, at the heart of a national network of charities sharing the common cause of supporting our service community, both nationally and locally, ensuring their unique contribution is never forgotten. We help forces, veterans and their families. You only need to have served a week in the Armed Forces to be eligible for Royal British Legion support.
Our Branch supports the local Service community by raising money for the RBL Dunkirk Memorial House in Bishops Lydeard. We also have Branch Community Support which reaches out to the isolated and lonely in the local Armed Forces Community, offering Telephone Buddies, Home and Hospital Visiting, bereavement support, including representation at funerals and signposting.
Our fundraising events are open to all in the community. Our latest Charity lunch in June raised £656. Future events are planned. The next one is a Horse Racing Night which will be held at The Crown Inn, Fivehead on Saturday 21 October at 7pm. Come along for a guaranteed exciting evening! Place your bets! Win some! And raise funds for the RBL! We look forward to seeing you there.
