It’s the British Legions 90th anniversary this year and, having raised over £36m in 2010, involving over 44m poppies, they are aiming for £40m this year. There are many ways to support the appeal including some new ones.
Social media links are:
The Royal British Legion wall (Shoulder to shoulder) where you can show your support by uploading your photo and wearing a poppy.
Legion live – Blogs & much more
We have a Twitter feed for Poppy Appeal, many of the above links and Laurence Binyon’s poem “For The Fallen” over at our sister site I.org.uk.
Remembrance Day (November 13), has the traditional local and national memorials throughout the UK with the iconic Cenotaph ceremony including the haunting tones of The Last Post.
