Long Sutton Royal British Legion Women’s Section chairman Enid Pearson has dedicated a great part of her life to the Legion.

Enid, whose late husband Ray was in the Royal Artillery, says the charity exists to help ex-servicemen and women and their families when they need assistance.

Enid said: “They help the children of service families through university and do lots of good work, especially at the moment with all these men coming back injured.”

As well as the RBL, Enid supports Marie Curie Cancer Care and runs a coffee morning every Friday at Long Sutton parish church, where she is a member of the Mothers’ Union.

She is also a member of the Red Hat Society for women of a certain age who want to “grow old disgracefully”.
