Family Holiday Breaks
The Royal British Legion offer seven days and seven nights of relaxation and entertainment on holidays between Easter and the school half-term each year, which in 2013 is 22 March to 25 October. They normally organise the holidays on a Friday-to-Friday basis, but can look into other options where necessary.
Their Break Centres in Bridlington, Southport, Portrush and Weston-Super-Mare as well as some of the UK's top holiday providers, aim to give families a week of fun, activities, exciting day-trips and memorable experiences, all in traditional British seaside resorts.

Adventure Breaks for Young People
Working in partnership with KG Adventure, a provider of adventure holidays for many years, the Legion offers FREE week-long adventure breaks to children of men and women who are currently serving, or have served in the Armed Forces.
This Adventure Break is a great opportunity for young people to enjoy themselves, meet new people, experience new things, improve their self esteem - and most of all have fun. Needless to say parents get a well earned break as well.
An Adventure Break package includes:
Seven nights accommodation with three meals a day
A day out to a theme park
Travel to and from the Centre (where necessary)
Activities can include:
Arts & Crafts
