Volunteers needed for Wirral Poppy Appeal
VOLUNTEERS are needed to help collect for this year’s Poppy Appeal across Wirral.
The Royal British Legion is calling on people to come forward to give just two hours of their time to help make this coming Appeal the biggest and best ever.
Julie Dove, the charity's community fundraiser for Cheshire said: "It is a period of intense activity for our volunteers and we need 50 more across the Wirral to sit at manned poppy stands in the supermarkets and in other key locations for just two hours between Saturday, October 26 and November 9.
"You need have no military background whatsoever, just a strong desire to support our Armed Forces and their families now, and for the rest of their lives.
"Every poppy helps The Royal British Legion to support the Armed Forces past and present and their families and a whopping £1.6 million is spent each week on delivering direct practical care and support to our Armed Forces community."
More than 40 million poppies will be made and distributed across the County and overseas by more than 350,000 collectors, aiming to raise £37million.
If you want to show your respect and support of our Armed Forces family by volunteering two hours of your time in October and November email Julie Dove on email@example.com or call 07768 238875
