This year Incommunities is making its annual Christmas donation to support the work of the Royal British Legion.
Incommunities’ Group Chief Executive, Geraldine Howley, was this week delighted to present a cheque for £1,000 to Debbie Harding, Area Manager for the national charity in Yorkshire.
In 2018, the Royal British Legion led the nation in commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and the sacrifice of all those who have given their lives in conflicts.
Each year Incommunities makes a festive donation to a different charity instead of sending out Christmas cards to customers and partners.
In addition to the cheque donation, staff and customers have raised over £300 for the Royal British Legion during this year’s Poppy Appeal and in collections over the year.
Geraldine was joined at the cheque handover by two Incommunities staff who are among several employees with connections to the armed forces – Damian Williams, who is a reservist and Chris Walls, a former RAF medic.
Geraldine Howley said: “As a group we are extremely proud to support the Royal British Legion as our chosen Christmas charity.
“Many staff and our customers will have cherished memories of relatives and loved ones who have bravely served their country in past conflicts and we feel it is particularly appropriate to support The Legion in this anniversary year.
“I would also like to thank everyone who has made donations to the Legion over the last weeks and months at our offices.”
Debbie Harding, Area Manager for the Royal British Legion, said: “Incommunities’ wonderful donation is hugely welcome.
“The work of the Legion is as relevant and vital today as it was in the aftermath of the First World War when the charity was founded.
“Incommunities donations will help The Legion support today’s Armed Forces community through all kinds of hardships, injury and bereavements.
“Generations of the Armed Forces have continued to serve and sacrifice since the First World War, and we recognise and thank them all for their contribution.
“Thank you everyone for your support.”
