An armed forces charity needs the help of Dales people

The Royal British Legion and the thousands of servicemen and woman it helps each year need your help.

Poppy People are an army of volunteers, 300,000 strong, which help distribute the iconic poppy and collect donations. From visiting schools to local businesses it helps you get involved in the local community – all the while knowing that you are helping our brave ex and current servicemen and women.

Whether you have a link to someone serving in the armed forces or not, you can be part of a team that has currently raised nearly £40 million over the last year.

The Poppy Appeal is one of the most iconic charitable campaigns in the UK. The money that is collected is used to provide financial, social and emotional support to those who have served and their families.
