Glenton Holidays is proud to support Legion Scotland.
About Legion Scotland
Royal British Legion Scotland (Legion Scotland) helps ex-services men and women of all ages across Scotland to adapt to civilian life.
They provide specialist disablement pensions advice, wellbeing support and a range or comradeship events for the ex-service community and their families. Legion Scotland members lead and help to organise remembrance events around Scotland, working with schools and young people, as well as working with to providing a listening ear and fundraise for remembrance.
When servicemen and women return to civilian life after serving with the Armed Forces some are in need of community and friendship either as a result of their experiences in the services, or purely because they are no longer part of the military ‘family’ on which they had come to rely. At Legion Scotland veterans of all ages and backgrounds find a sense of fellowship and comradeship. Members are welcomed into the large family network spread across Scotland where doors open to a range of opportunities.
About the Charity Partnership
Legion Scotland members as well as their family and friends will receive free places on group bookings, a 5% discount on individual holidays, and their own dedicated team to arrange their holidays. A further aspect of the partnership will see Glenton donate 2.5 per cent of the sales from this Affinity Programme back to Legion Scotland. Glenton customers will also be given the opportunity to donate to Legion Scotland when booking their holidays.
Harriet Boyle, managing director at Glenton said:
“The importance of quality support for our ex-service men and women goes without saying and our staff are very proud to be able to support the great work done by Legion Scotland. Through this new partnership we have the chance to provide funding for veterans’ ongoing support as well as help them and their families to take holidays and create new memories to treasure.”
Kevin Gray MM, chief executive officer added:
“This new partnership with Glenton is a fantastic opportunity for Legion Scotland members and their families to spend some quality time travelling and experiencing the high level of service we know Glenton offers.
“After leaving military service, where comradeship is key, some veterans can suffer from isolation. Legion Scotland therefore runs various sports and social programmes which encourage members of the ex-services community to get together, providing the opportunity to talk. Glenton holidays and day trips adds a new dimension to this. Funds raised through this partnership will also enable us to provide more support for all of the ex-service community across Scotland.”

STV Children's appeal
GLENTON is delighted to announce that we are now a “friend” of STV Children’s Appeal.

In just six years they have raised an incredible £13.7 million and helped more than 62,000 young people across Scotland. By becoming a “friend”, GLENTON will have lots of opportunities to get involved to raise funds with challenging events such as Pedal for Scotland or Kilt-walks.
