Welcome to the Bideford Branch of the Royal British Legion...

The Bideford branch of the Royal British Legion is just one of many branches throughout the U.K. that offer assistance and support to ex service and serving personnel and their families. Most people think it's about Poppy Appeal once a year but this just isn't the case, the help offered can range from helping the homeless to get housed to helping ex-service families with everyday problems, such as employability, social support, and physical health to name but a few.

In recent times we have found our services are required more and more so we now have a web page which will give people direct access to our knowledge base (support.britishlegion.org.uk) and also a direct line if you wish to contact one of our support staff  08088 028 080 all conversations and information is treated in the strictest confidence.

We are very proud and grateful for the support and co-operation we receive locally and with the local authority and various local like minded charities different forms of assistance may be rendered as and when required.

If you think you may be able to help us with our work call 07971 362 602 or just turn up at one of our meetings held the first Wednesday of every month 7pm at the Conservative Club Bridgeland St Bideford.

Total raised so far in bideford over £15,000
Many thanks to all who assisted in this great effort

Please note: On 15th August 2015 in Victoria Park Bideford,

Please muster at 11:45am by the memorial stones
and aftwards refreshments at the Conservative Club.


The History What We Do Get Involved
The British Legion was founded in 1921 as a voice for the ex-service community as a merger of four organisations: The Comrades of the Great War, the National Association of Discharged Sailors and Soldiers, the National Federation of Discharded and Demobilized Sailors and Soldiers and the Officers' Association.
