Latest News Renew your membership now Legion Scotland’s membership has been severely impacted by the pandemic – so the more members that can renew this year, the better it will be for our branches. Renewal paperwork for all members has now been issued to branches. Many branches will have already reached out to confirm arrangements with members, while others may be in touch soon. If you don’t hear, please reach out to them! Your paperwork for 2021/2022 will contain your renewal letter and a 2021/2022 sticker for the back of your membership card, plus your vote registration paperwork. Being a member of Legion Scotland helps support the work that we do with the veterans’ community in Scotland. We don’t know what the winter months may hold for everyone – and the pandemic saw our membership reduce by 16% last year. So we really need your support! DIRECT DEBIT One way to help your branch and ensure your membership is renewed and up to date is to register for direct debit. There is still time to set this up for the 2021/2022 membership year, so ask your branch for a form, download from here or get in touch with head office on 0131 550 1548. Direct debits are set up on the 1st and 15th of each month and can be applied to this membership year at any time, so don’t worry that you’ve missed the boat – get in touch now! GIFT AID All members who are eligible can opt in to giving Gift Aid using their membership form or renewal paperwork and we still have thousands of members not signed up. To sign up to Gift Aid all you need to do is complete the declaration and send it to Head Office, we do the rest and there is no cost to the member personally. It is simple and easy and only needs to be completed once. Completion of the Gift Aid Declaration allows us to claim 25p for every £1 back from HMRC, that is £3.75 per member on the £15 capitation fee. THANK YOU Thank you for your membership through the last 12 months. Please know that your membership makes a vital difference to us. See legionscotland.org.uk/join, talk to your local branch, or call the membership department on 0131 550 1586.
