British Legion - Freiston Branch


THE FREISTON BRANCH OF THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION

THE FREISTON BRANCH OF THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION
The parent body of the British Legion was formed in 1921 as a voice to support the ex-service community.
The Freiston & District Branch was formed in 1938 and this includes Fishtoft, Butterwick, Benington and Leverton.
 
The aims of the Branch:
1. To support the parent body in its activities.
2. To organise the annual Poppy Fortnight Appeal in the catchment area. We are always in need of people to help with this Appeal.
3. To visit members, and non-members who have done military service, who are incapacitated, and advise on any financial or practical support they might need.  In the case of non-members we do rely on being notified of any such cases by the public.
4. Social activities where other members of the public are invited.
5. Recruiting new members.  Any person can become a supporting member for £15 per year without having served in the armed forces.
 
Meetings of the Branch are held at the Five Bells Public House, Butterwick bi-monthly on the second Monday of the month at 2.00 pm.
