Local Branch Membership is designed for women who would like to play an active role in our organisation and are able to commit the time to attend regular meetings and participate in fundraising activities. It’s a great opportunity to meet other women in your local community, have a bit of fun and fundraise for a fantastic cause.
As a local Branch Member, you’ll enjoy a varied programme organised by each Branch and every member can contribute ideas to the branch’s programme of speakers, activities and fundraising events.
On becoming a member you’ll receive a membership card and your local Branch Secretary will give you details of branch activities you may want to get involved with.
As a local branch member, you’ll also be entitled to attend our Annual Conference which brings together branch delegates from all over the country to review the work of the organisation and vote on the resolutions that form the backbone of Women’s Section policy and welfare.
You’ll also have the opportunity to apply for tickets to the Legion’s most sought after event, the annual Festival of Remembrance.
Other opportunities include taking part in local/national fundraising events (including the November Poppy Appeal), training and qualifying as a Standard Bearer, Parade Marshal or Caseworker, and developing news skills to take on Branch and County Committee positions.
Local Branch membership costs £8 per year (with a small variable administration charge on top). There may also be an additional charge to join the local club (please contact your local branch or county office for confirmation). The membership year runs from 1 October to 30 September.
Local Branch Membership is payable by cheque, postal order or cash and is paid directly to the branch you join.
If in the event there isn't a branch in your area and you know a group of women who are keen to get involved, why don't you consider starting up a new branch yourselves? Click here for more information.
