Henley-on-Thames Community Poppy Appeal
Your local Poppy Appeal campaign is honoured to be supporting The Royal British Legion. For more than a century, the Legion has been ceaselessly and effectively working to ensure that the past and present servicemen and servicewomen and their families fare better in the face of adversities.
If you have the time and would like to give something back to the Armed Forces for the unique difficulties they resolve and the sacrifices they make for us, please become a Henley and Peppard Poppy Appeal volunteer. In past years our community has generously helped to raise considerable sums and has made a real difference to the Armed Forces community.
The funds raised by our campaign go towards upholding the welfare of the members of the British Armed Forces, veterans and their families, from their first day of service and continues through their life. The funds also help to support British subjects who have served alongside the British Armed Forces such as members of the Brigade of Gurkhas and their families.
The Royal British Legion is the UK’s leading Armed Forces charity that also works with many smaller charities that provide specialised support to service personnel in need.
The Poppy Appeal relies on the exuberant spirit of our volunteers, whether it is just to give a few hours a year to collect donations, to help manage the campaign or help fundraise with special activities.
If you could spare a little time to help raise funds towards helping courageous service personnel, please contact your local Poppy Appeal Organiser, Sara Abey at firstname.lastname@example.org
