    London Poppy Day with Royal Navy sailors involved in a record fundraising

    The sailors are collecting at key transport hubs and stations, all in support of the Legion’s 100th anniversary cash-raising effort.

    London Poppy Day saw more than 200 Royal Navy sailors in the streets in a fundraising effort to help the Royal British Legion and raise awareness of the sacrifices made by Service personnel past and present. After last year’s fundraising effort was scaled back due to the pandemic. 2021 is looking to set a record: the biggest cash street collection of its kind in Europe.
