Since starting in the 20s, the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal has raised hundreds of millions of pounds for serving and ex-serving members of the British Armed Forces and their families. For generations, the red poppy has been a symbol of respect and remembrance for those lost during war – not only in the First and Second World Wars, but all wars since then.
Money made from purchases of Poppies goes to helping members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, and their families. The money is for those still serving and those who previously served in any war where the UK has been involved – not just the two World Wars. Support created by the funds goes to expert advice and guidance, recovery and rehabilitation, and transitioning back into civilian life for those who have served.
We are doing our small bit to support this year’s appeal – we have car poppies on our vehicles and through our Amazon Smile account, we are making donations of 0.5% on our purchases to the royal British Legion.
