Royal British Legion

Enthusiastic to support the work of the Royal British Legion, Bennetts sponsor publication costs for the Regional Members Handbook.  In addition to the sale of poppies at our offices, Bennetts also transform their premises front windows in Brentwood and Billericay, every November, to assist the Legion in their effort to maximise public awareness of the local and national Poppy Appeal.

During the period of Poppy appeal, members of staff regard a Haig Fund lapel poppy as regular feature of their uniform.

On Remembrance Sunday, Bennetts are represented at the Town War memorials in Brentwood and Billericay.  Since created by the Haig Fund, a British Institute of Funeral Directors wreath is laid by our representatives.

The Brentwood Branch of the Royal British Legion union flag pall, was provided and presented in 2002 by Bennetts.
