Poppy Appeal Launched In Mansfield

The Deputy Mayor joined veterans to launch the annual Poppy Appeal in Mansfield last week. Poppy Appeal organiser Joe Martin from the Mansfield branch of the Royal British Legion presented the first poppy to Deputy Mayor Cllr Mick Barton at Mansfield Civic Centre. 

Every poppy sold will help the Royal British Legion support bereaved families, wounded Service men and women, younger veterans seeking employment and housing, and older veterans needing age-related care.  

Cllr Sean McCallum, Mansfield District Council’s Armed Forces Champion, said: “The poppy appeal has always been, and continues to be a vital opportunity for the Royal British Legion to gather the necessary funds it needs for its charitable works during the forthcoming year. 

“I whole heartedly support the fantastic work they have done in our district and would encourage everyone to buy a poppy and wear it with pride”

Deputy Mayor Cllr Mick Barton, said: "It is always an honour to meet the veterans and the people who do such an amazing job collecting for this appeal. We must never forget the sacrifices of our Service men and women, who have given their lives for our futures.

“Every £1 donated goes towards a wide range of services and support for our veterans, serving personnel and their families, so please support this very worthwhile cause.”

Poppies are available for a donation in the Civic Centre and at venues throughout the district.
