Clive Efford was “delighted” to meet with The Royal British Legion to learn about its welfare support for the whole Armed Forces family when he attended an event at the House of Commons organised by The Royal British Legion to highlight their important work.
At the event, Clive was learnt about the Legion’s vital work to improve the welfare of the Armed Forces family in the local area.
Geoff Simpson, the Legion’s County Manager for Kent, said, “It was great to see Clive; we really appreciated him making the time to drop in. Many people don’t realise that we spend nearly £1.4 million a week on helping both the serving and the ex-Service communities, including their families, so we were delighted to tell Clive about the range of services we provide. We help everyone from a child of a serving family needing an adventure break to a young entrepreneur needing advice and assistance to be his own boss.”
Clive said, “It is always a real honour to work with the Legion, which does such important, and yet often unseen, welfare work for some of my most vulnerable constituents in both the serving and ex-Service communities. It is vital that we, as a nation, are there for those serving in current conflicts, and for the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. I was grateful for the opportunity to learn more about how the Legion stands shoulder to shoulder with all who Serve. They deserve as much support as we can give them”.
