WHAT IS THE POPPY APPEAL?
The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every year in November, the period of Remembrance.
Each year, an army of volunteers distribute the iconic paper poppies throughout the nation, collecting donations in return to help support the vital work they do for the Armed Forces community.
Members of the public wear the paper poppy on their chest as a symbol of Remembrance: to remember the fallen Service men and women killed in conflict.
A number of Remembrance events, such Remembrance Sunday, are held during the Poppy Appeal to commemorate the fallen.
The main fundraising events during the Poppy Appeal are all about bringing communities together to fundraise and enjoy themselves in the process.
Numerous cities across the country dedicate a day to distributing poppies and getting the public involved through activities and entertainment, from military bands to NFL cheerleaders.
Please show your support & visit Pete May at Tesco, King Cross who is currently giving his spare time for this charitable cause.
Protheroe Property offer discounts on lettings & sales services to serving & former service personnel throughout November.
