The week beginning Monday 2nd November the school council will be coming into forms to sell poppies…

The Legion created the Poppy Appeal to help those returning from the First World War. A century on from the start of that conflict, we’re still helping today’s Armed Forces families in much the same way, whether coping with bereavement, living with disability, or finding employment.

The poppy is a powerful symbol – it is worn to commemorate the sacrifices of our Armed Forces and to show support to those still serving today and their loved ones.

Money raised through the Poppy Appeal goes directly to our welfare work, providing through-life care to anyone who currently serves in the British Armed Forces, who has previously served, and their families. This could include supporting:

  • Bereaved families to cope after the loss of a loved one
  • Those leaving the Forces into work and housing
  • Older veterans to get the care and support they need and deserve.
