For the month of August, to mark the 100th anniversary of the day Britain entered the First World War, Blackhouse restaurants around the UK offered customers the chance to add £1 to their bill to support the work of The Royal British Legion and raised £9,505.
The 4th of August 2014 marked the 100th anniversary of the day Britain entered one of the costliest conflicts in history - the First World War - with fighting continuing until the 11th of November 1918, Armistice Day.
"The Royal British Legion are delighted to have worked in partnership with Blackhouse restaurants and their customers in August 2014, to mark the 100th anniversary of the day Britain entered the First World War, while also raising vital funds for the work of the charity." Jade Irons, Corporate Partnerships Officer at The Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion was founded by British veterans in the aftermath of the First World War and a century on is the nation's leading Armed Forces charity, providing care and practical care to the whole Armed Forces community. The problems facing First World War veterans when they returned to the UK continue to affect serving personnel and veterans today: whether living with bereavement or disability, finding employment, or coping with financial stress.
