Welcome to the Corby Branch of The Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Armed Forces charity and one of its largest membership organisations. Members get together through the network of branches and clubs all over the country and overseas to participate in social, fundraising and welfare activities.
Corby Branch meets on the first Satuday of every month at 7.00pm at Lloyd's Road Social and Ex-Servicemen's Club.
Membership is open to everyone. If you have an interest in the objectives of the Legion and want to help and support for those who have served and their families, come and join us. We welcome men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not.
Legion membership ensures that
- Remembrance is kept alive and that the sacrifices our brave Service men and women have made are never forgotten.
- The ex-Service community have a voice and that their concerns are brought to the public eye.
Becoming a member also provides the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of activities and events held locally, regionally and nationally throughout the year.
About The Royal British Legion
We provide financial, social and emotional care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces - past and present and their families. The Legion is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces and is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.
Founded in 1921, the Legion is not just about those who fought in the two World Wars of the last century, but also about those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy today.
Royal Voluntary Service can help older people maintain their independence and stay involved in the local community.
We have volunteers in Northamptonshire who offer help and support so older people can stay safe warm and well at home across Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Rushden, Daventry and Northampton.
See our local services below but we may be able to offer you more. If you can't find something suitable for you or a loved one then just ask.
As everyone is different, Royal Voluntary Service can tailor support to your individual needs. We’ll visit you at home and work with you to create a support package that suits you.
All out volunteers are DBS checked.
The Autumn Centre is a Day Centre in Corby which is run by a management committee and is especially for the over 50's. They offer a range of different activities and Day Opportunities for Older People. For more information telephone or email using the details provided.
All of our walks are designed to encourage participation in a fun and friendly environment.
Ranging from a 15 minute walk to walks over 60 minutes in duration, you will have the chance to sample some of Corby's beautiful countryside and iconic landmarks.
