Neil Parish MP stands shoulder to shoulder with all who Serve Neil Parish, MP for Tiverton & Honiton, has been thanked by The Royal British Legion for taking the time to learn about its welfare support for the whole Armed Forces family. He attended an event at the House of Commons 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.
John Pentreath, the Legion's County Manager for Devon, said, "It was great to see Mr Parish at this event; we really appreciated his taking 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 remind 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 Parish said, "I was really pleased to see my local County Manager. The Legion does very important 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".
