The Royal

British Legion Poppy Appeal

The Poppy Appeal was first launched, after the First World War, in 1921 and since that time the funds raised have helped to make a real difference to the lives of Service men and women, veterans and their loved ones. The earlier perception that the poppy and the work of the Legion are often associated with the First and Second World War veterans. However the charity is calling on the public to consider all generations of the Armed Forces community. Rethink Remembrance Here in Saxmundham we must continue to nurture and foster this spirit of caring and generosity and try to raise as much money as we can to increase the funds, which will enable The Royal British Legion

to continue to provide

the support services it offers to our Armed Forces Community today.

In 2015/2016 the wonderful

residents and businesses have raised £8,886.46 – a tremendous achievement. Not only do we have Saxmundham to thank for the result but also the surrounding villages and the help of our Poppy Collectors (some of whom have collected over thirty years and some young people who helped for the first time),

generous benefactors and all the shops / businesses. We hope we can build and strengthen our resolve to raise even more in the coming years. If you feel that you are able or would like to help – perhaps with a collecting box in your own home, half an hour helping with our street collections, fundraising – whatever you can do – please contact the Suffolk Community Fundraiser. The forward dates for Remembrance Sunday are 12th November 2017, 11th November 2018, 10th November 2019.
