Today was the launch of the British Legion’s Poppy Appeal. It was my privilege to attend the launch with my daughter, who now has her second poppy. It was good to hear from our local Member of Parliament and of course the Deputy Mayor of Torfaen. It was also nice to have highlighted the vital work of the British Legion.
The British Legion do vital work to help all members of the British Armed Forces (both the regular Army and the Territorial Army, Navy, RAF and Royal Marines) as well as their families also running the poppy appeal and remembering the fallen.
I’ve always thought that the work of the British Legion was important, and it was a pleasure to help kick off this campaign.
