Welcome to the Woodford & Bramhall branch of The Royal British Legion 2021
2021 POPPY APPEAL STARTS 28TH OCTOBER 2021
This year, we mark 100 years of the Royal British Legion.
- 100 years of the Poppy and Remembrance
Since it was first worn as an act of Remembrance just over 100 years ago, the poppy has become an enduring symbol of support for our Armed Forces, past and present, and every poppy counts. For 100 years Remembrance has been part of the fabric of society, reminding us of our shared history and today it continues to unite people across all backgrounds, communities, and generations. Throughout history the British Armed Forces have defended freedom and democracy, join us in our 100th year to remember their service and sacrifice
Every poppy counts, which is why getting our Poppy Appeal collectors back out in local communities is so important. Your support is as vital as ever as the impact of Covid-19 continues to leave some members of the Armed Forces community in urgent need of our help. There are many ways you can take part and support the RBL’s Poppy Appeal visit rbl.org.uk to find out more.
