Sheringham Community Paper The Poppy People Campaign was launched nationally in London at the beginning of July and the purpose of the campaign is to recruit more volunteers to assist as Organisers and/or Collectors for the Poppy Appeal. Norfolk's County launch took place on 31st July at the North Norfolk Railway in Sheringham. It was a lovely sunny day and several local branch members turned up to help promote the campaign. Donning their bright yellow t-shirts and carrying large poppies, these volunteers 'rode the trains' handing out leaflets and telling the passengers all about The Royal British Legion and why the collections are so necessary.

Sheringham Community Paper To be a Poppy Person, you don't need any special skills or qualifications; you don't even need to be a member of the Legion. All you need is the will and desire to help and the time. In as little as 2 hours you may be able to collect as much as 50, which could help the Legion stay on duty round the clock, answering calls to our helpline, making home and hospital visits to veterans and fighting to ensure that ex-Service men and women get the treatment that they deserve. Let's not forget why the Poppy Appeal is so important. It's about remembrance and recognition. It's about honouring the countless men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us and it's about helping the thousands of ex-Service people who need our help today. Over 300,000 ex-Service people call on the Legion for help each year. The Poppy Appeal needs to keep on growing and for that we need more Poppy People, so join us today and help keep the Poppy alive in this area. For more information call 0800 085 5924 or
