Poppy Appeal 2014

Knitted Poppy

Poundland are delighted to be supporting this year’s Poppy Appeal and all of our colleagues are welcome to wear a Poppy to show their support for this year’s appeal. A minute’s silence will also be held in our stores as a mark of respect on Remembrance Day, Sunday 9th November.

Poundland’s Head Office has been selling woven poppies (as pictured) which have kindly been made and donated by a colleague’s wife, who every year gives up her time to make them. Other poppies are also available for colleagues and visitors to purchase at reception.

Over 40 million poppies are distributed by the Legion every year at the end of October and up to 11th November. Each and every poppy is a symbol of Remembrance and hope and millions of people make the individual choice to wear one.

The poppy appeal to raise money for the Royal British Legion helps the whole Armed Forces community through welfare, comradeship and representation as well as being the Nation’s custodian of Remembrance.

Please show your support and buy a poppy.
