We are pleased to announce that on 29th January we signed a new 2 year Community Compact agreement with The Royal British Legion (Staffordshire County region.) During 2014 & 2015 we will raise funds for The Royal British Legion. During the First World War Centenary it is appropriate that we will be supporting a charity that in turn supports those that serve & have served our country in the Armed Forces.
