Evennett stands shoulder to shoulder with all who serve

David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, has been thanked by The Royal British Legion for taking the time to learn about its welfare support for the whole Armed Forces family.

Mr Evennett attended an event at the House of Commons last week, which was organised by The Royal British Legion to highlight their important work. At the event, he was told about the Legion’s work to improve the welfare of the Armed Forces family in the local area.

Geoff Simpson, the Legion’s County Manager, said, “It was great to see David; we really appreciated his 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 him 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.”

Mr Evennett said, “The Royal British Legion do fantastic work both locally and nationally to support those who have served our country. It was a privilege to meet with them again and learn about their current and future activities.”
