ROYAL BRITISH LEGION, ALDRIDGE BRANCH
Our Charity of the month
July’s Charity Giving Royal British Legion Aldridge Branch
The Legion was founded in 1921 so this year they celebrate their CENTENARY YEAR. It was formed as a voice for the Ex-Service community merging 3 organisations. The Comrades of The Great War, National Association of Discharged Sailors and Soldiers and The National Federation of Discharged and Demobilized Sailors and Soldiers.
Field Marshal The 1st Earl Haig was a founder member and served as President of The Royal British Legion until his death in 1928. He is also known for the Earl Haig Fund or Poppy Appeal for which The RBL is probably best known and The Remembrance Service from The Royal Albert Hall in London each year.
However, The Legion does many other supportive work throughout the UK and further afield. It supports over 33,000 War disablement pension cases in various ways. It gives physical and wellbeing support to ex-serving and serving personnel and their families. In particular mental health issues. They also give financial and employment support. Housing and homeless support. Most of the funds come from The Annual Poppy Appeal which was affected last year from the corona virus preventing the collections and Remembrance services going ahead in the usual ways.
Then there are the local support groups throughout the UK, such as the Aldridge branch and other local branches where the volunteers many ex-service personnel offer help and support in many practical ways.
On July 18th Tam Miller from Aldridge Royal British Legion Branch will be coming to St. Martin’s to tell us more of their work.

Rev Jenny was licensed as vicar of St Martin's in March 2017
St Martin’s has a long, proud history of serving the community of Walsall. Through the dedication of our leadership, ministers and volunteers, we are committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ, and are here to serve our community and spread His love. We are open to worshippers of all ages and backgrounds, and strive to lead all who worship with us towards a deeper love for God.
Everyone is welcome.
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, straight, gay, questioning, well-heeled or down at heel. We especially welcome wailing babies and excited toddlers.
We welcome you whether you can sing like Pavarotti or just growl quietly to yourself. You’re welcome here if you’re ‘just browsing,’ just woken up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven’t been to church since Christmas ten years ago.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems, are down in the dumps or don’t like ‘organised religion.’ (We’re not that keen on it either!)
We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are here because granny is visiting and wanted to come to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced, both or neither. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throat as kids or got lost on the ring road and wound up here by mistake. We welcome pilgrims, tourists, seekers, doubters… and you!
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love”
