Lilian Greenwood MP for Nottingham South recently met with The Royal British Legion to discuss the welfare work they do with the whole Armed Forces family.
At an event in the House of Commons, the city MP was told about the charity’s new strapline, ‘Shoulder to shoulder with all who serve’, and about the difference the Legion is making in the local area.
Lilian Greenwood said,
“I was really pleased to meet our local Legion Manager and tell him that just as the Legion stands shoulder to shoulder with all who serve, so do I.”
“The Royal British Legion does very important welfare work for some of my most vulnerable constituents in both the serving and ex-Service communities. I was delighted to thank them for the difference they make to the welfare of the whole Armed Forces family.”
Paul Mulingani, the Legion’s County Manager for Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, said,
“It was great to see Lilian Greenwood MP we really appreciated her making the time to drop in. Many people don’t realise that we spend over £1.2 million a week on helping both the serving and the ex-Service communities, including their families, so we were delighted to tell Lilian about the range of services we provide.”
“The Legion is currently celebrating its 90th Anniversary Year, and campaigning for the Armed Forces family is as important to us now as it was in 1921. We’re really pleased that 70% of MPs, including Lilian, have pledged to do their bit as part of our ongoing ‘Time to do your bit’ campaign.”
