2017 Poppy Appeal - Live on to the memory of the fallen and the future of the living

Rbl logo 222


The Royal British Legion’s 2017 Poppy Appeal gets under way in Beverley from Saturday 28th October until Saturday 11th November.

There will be a Poppy Appeal Stall in Saturday Market (near the Grapes) for three Saturdays, as well as manned 'Poppy Points' in Morrison's, TESCO and ALDI. There will also be poppies on offer, for a donation, in shops throughout the town during the Remembrance period.

Rod Evans, Beverley's Poppy Appeal Organiser said:

“As the 2017 Poppy Appeal gets under way on Saturday, Once again The Royal British Legion would like people to 'rethink Remembrance' in the lead up to Remembrance Sunday. The work of the Legion is often associated with the two World Wars and elderly veterans. The Legion is calling on the public to think about members of the Armed Forces community from more recent conflicts, when they wear their poppy."

"It's important to remember that there's a new generation of veterans who need our support as much as our older veterans. When you pin your poppy on or just pause to remember, think of those younger Service men and women from more recent conflicts." "As the UKs leading Armed Forces charity, last year through your generosity, we were able to answer over 780,000 confidential requests for help."

"As our motto above states, we 'live on' using the poppy as a symbol of Remembrance and we ask you to wear it to make sure that the memory of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice is never forgotten. We also ask you to wear it with pride as we 'live on' to ensure that our Armed Forces community is never disadvantaged because of their service to their country."
