Teamwork between sponsors and our branch......
The Kyrenia Branch is one of the youngest overseas branches of the Royal British Legion and we pride ourselves on being a very pro-active Branch.
With approximately 2,500 Branches there is as of 2019, in the region of 225,000 members worldwide, most people are aware of the Royal British Legion and recognise the Poppy brand. We could make a great partner for companies who wish to raise their profile and profits as witnessed with our close association with Creditwest Bank.
There are numerous ways to get involved, not least with the Poppy Appeal - it can be as simple as making poppies and collection boxes available to your employees, clients and customers. Also providing raffle prizes, auction items and sponsorship are great ways of raising your company's profile, whilst cause related and affinity marketing create opportunities to build profitable partnerships. There may be some ideas that you had not considered before.
If there is anything that you would like to discuss, then we would be keen to hear from you. Please contact our Secretary.
