The Legion’s new area manager for the East Midlands Linda Flecknell said: “As the nation’s leading Armed Forces charity, The Royal British Legion has been helping Service people past and present for over 90 years.
We provide £1.6million every week in direct welfare support – that’s over £83million each year – and we respond to over 170,000 calls annually for practical help, advice and support.
“The local team is dedicated to providing a wide range of flexible support services.
“Last year we assisted nearly 3,000 members of the Armed Forces Community in the East Midlands and dealt with over 1,200 cases of support in Lincolnshire alone, a figure which is likely to increase as the demand for our services continues to rise.
