The Poppy Appeal

Each year, Remembrance helps to remind us of those who served in the British Armed Forces.

This year’s Remembrance Sunday takes on added significance, as it marks to the day, 100 years since the end of the First World War.

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, the fighting on the Western Front fell silent after 4 years of continuous warfare.

The day will be marked by Remembrance Sunday parades up and down the country, participating in a two-minute silence to remember and honour those who have been killed in not only the two World Wars, but the thousands of servicemen and women killed or injured since.

To commemorate the event, The Royal British Legion were kind enough to design a banner for us to use, which we then printed and erected on the side of our head office in Newport.

Adjacent to the M4, the banner will be visible to 100,000s of cars every single day, which we hope will remind people of the importance of Remembrance.

You can get a Poppy at your local shops, street sellers and Royal British Legion branches.
