2022 Poppy Appeal Launch

Royal British Legion (Shildon Branch) 2022 Poppy Appeal Launch  

No entry charge.

The annual 'Poppy Appeal' is still very much at the heart of what the Royal British Legion  is there for. It's our key annual drive to add to the national funds that we hold and make available to support our Armed Forces Community.

This fun evening at the Stute is the Royal British Legion Shildon Branch's way of marking the  beginning of this year's appeal.

Though timed to be held in the run up to Remembrance Sunday, our work isn't limited to supporting veterans of WW2. The organisation is there for all of our former armed forces personnel regardless of when and where they served. In order to continue to be there, the Royal British Legion needs both people who care to become members, and the money to make sure that we can offer help when that support is needed.

In 2021 the Shildon Branch, as part of a branch rejuvenation, moved its meetings and regular social meetings to the Stute. 

Please pop along on the 21st to support us.
