LISTEN AGAIN | News In Focus - Armistice Day

This week’s News In Focus, which highlighted the Armistice Day, is now available to hear again.

The program takes a look at the work done by the Royal British Legion done year upon year in supporting former service men & women, as they raise money through the Poppy Appeal.

Former service man Joe Martin runs the Poppy Shop in Mansfield and gave this harrowing example of how the money raised helps

“I used to be a case worker for the legion so I know where the money goes, literally every penny can count – imagine the modern day serviceman who are getting horrendous injuries, they can lose the digits of both hands they want to make a cup of tea, for me and you its easy you just turn a tap on, if you’ve got no digits to turn the taps on, you’ve got to have them modified to be leaver taps. There’s all sorts of little things that can help.”

The program features stories from veterans, volunteers, Royal British Legion staff and teachers and pupils from Ashfield School.
