Wills and Legacies
Wills are vital to The Royal British Legion as 20% of our income comes from Legacies left in Wills. In the past
year the Legion has received £9 million from Legacies, this has enabled the Welfare Services to help one in five of
our beneficiaries. So please consider helping to fund the Legion in years to come by making a donation in your
Will. Click on the arrow to find out more information.
The County Team are based in Saxon House in Derby. The County Team include the County Chairman, the
County Secretary, the County Manager and the County Welfare Officer.
