Royal British Legion, Borehamwood, urgently needs poppy sellers
Poppy sellers are urgently needed to make sure the sacrifices made by millions during the war are not forgotten.
The Royal British Legion, in Shenley Road, Borehamwood, still urgently needs volunteers to help sell poppies before Remembrance Sunday.
Collections will be held at Tescos, Shenley Road, and Morrisons, Stirling Way, this weekend and people only need to give two hours of their time.
Carole Denbigh, a volunteer at the legion, said: “It’s important we support this appeal because we’re paying allegiance for the people wounded in previous wars.
“We look after them for the rest of their lives. I urgently need more people to help sell the poppies - it’s our way of paying tribute to them.”
Last year, the branch raised £29,033 for the appeal.
Borehamwood’s annual Remembrance Sunday parade will be held on November 10 and hundreds are expected to attend.
People will meet at the Claredon Road car park, next to Superdrug off Shenley Road, at 10.15am to join in with the 20 minute parade.
It will see feature members of the British Legion, the Scouts, the Air Cadets and the Royal Navy Association.
To volunteer, ring the legion on 020 8386 2900.
