About the Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion is the United Kingdom’s leading Armed Forces charity providing care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces past and present and their families. It is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Armed Forces Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces. It is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.

Support

The Royal British Legion provides lifelong support for the Armed Forces community – serving men and women, veterans and their families wherever they are in the world.

If you are a serving member of the Armed Forces, have served or are the dependent or carer of someone who has served in the UK’s Armed Forces, then you could be eligible for help from our Branch in Madrid.

Meetings

The Madrid Branch meets at The Secret Kingdoms bookshop on the first Sunday of the month at 5.30pm. The bookshop is located at Calle Moratín 7, 28014 Madrid.

Madrid Remembrance Campaign 2023

We recently conducted our first remembrance campaign. Despite facing some challenges as newcomers, we are proud to announce that we successfully raised over €3,300. This accomplishment would not have been possible without the generosity and support of our community.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the British Consulate in Bilbao, the British Council School Madrid, the British Embassy Madrid, the British Ladies Association, Numont School Madrid, International School Madrid, King’s College Soto de Viñuelas, King’s College School La Moraleja, King’s College Infants La Moraleja, Runnymede College, St George’s Anglican Church Madrid, Saint George’s Guild, The Secret Kingdoms, and Torrejon Airbase for their unwavering support of the Royal British Legion and the Remembrance Campaign.

We also express our appreciation to Booksellers, the British Cemetery, the British Council in Somosaguas, Cardo & Olivo, Do Spain, 1st Madrid British Scouts, 1st Majadahonda Scouts, Our Lady of Mercy Church, Thames British School Madrid, and Universidad Juan Carlos Ⅰ for their collaboration with the Royal British Legion in our inaugural year. We look forward to fostering more partnerships in the future.

A special thanks to Saint George’s Church for consistently providing us with a table at their fairs and bazaars. We also extend our gratitude to the British Ladies Association for their generous donation of €500 from the proceeds of their Christmas Bazaar.
