Donations to The Royal British Legion now exceed £12m

The Royal British Legion is delighted to be supported by Coventry Building Society. In October 2015, the Coventry launched another Poppy Bond – the latest addition to the successful Poppy range which has helped raise over £12 million since 2008.

Every year since 2008 the Coventry has made a donation to The Royal British Legion based on how much members have saved in their Poppy accounts. When staff at the Coventry saw how their donations made a difference, they wanted to contribute more. That’s why they made The Royal British Legion their Corporate Charity in 2012. As well as the Poppy accounts, the Coventry now also provides supports through fundraising events and by volunteering staff time.

Mark Parsons, Chief Executive of the Coventry, said: “We’re delighted that we’ve been able to make such a contribution to the work of The Royal British Legion and proud that we’ve been able to help the Legion maintain its vital services to the Armed Forces community, including the Battle Back Centre (Lilleshall) which supports wounded, injured and sick Service personnel. We’re able to do this solely because of the support of our staff and members.”
