Earlier this year, we hit a company milestone. A milestone that will be hard to ever beat…
On 30th January 2019, news quickly filled the office that through the sales of commemorative Remembrance and Poppy-themed coins, that The Westminster Collection had raised an incredible £1 Million for The Royal British Legion!
This is an achievement that everyone is immensely proud of, and we are delighted to see that our 15 years partnership with The Royal British Legion has raised such an amazing amount to support the Armed Forces community and their families.
To celebrate this important occasion, company Chairman, Stephen Allen, and our Product Development Team were invited along to The Legion’s Southampton Pop-In Centre where they got the chance to meet volunteers and staff that help the Armed Forces Community. And, perhaps most importantly, presented The Royal British Legion with the £1,007,239.36 cheque!
“We are delighted to have raised such a significant amount for The Legion. The donations raised will be able to go towards helping the Armed Forces community, which we feel incredibly passionate about as a company.”Stephen Allen, Chairman of The Westminster Collection
“I am extremely proud that we have the continued support of The Westminster Collection as our partner, supporting us since 2004, which is wonderful, just think of all the lives they have touched and enhanced. We are thrilled that the partnership has reached an incredible milestone of raising £1 Million in donations, donations raised from each and every coin sold from the iconic Poppy Collection and Commemoratives.”Claire Rowcliffe, Director of Fundraising at The Royal British Legion
We are all excited to see our longstanding partnership continue this year when we launch our brand new range of Poppy commemorative coins in September.

The Royal British Legion provides lifelong support to serving and ex-serving personnel and their families. People need help for many different reasons. They may be facing employment issues or financial difficulties, or may need help related to housing, homelessness or living independently. They may face mental and physical health challenges, need care in later life or need help building local community connections. Whatever issues people face, the Legion’s staff and volunteers are trained so they can direct enquiries to the most appropriate service. And, if there is ever a reason that they can’t help, the Legion’s vast network of partner charities and organisations means that they will know someone who can.
