Hey Reds! Before the World Cup break, you might have noticed a poppy symbol present on the jerseys of all the professional soccer teams in England. The poppy flower is a symbol of commemoration and remembrance of the soldiers who made the sacrifice to fight for their country in the First World War. The poppy symbol has been worn by players, managers, staff, and match officials since 2012 leading up to Remembrance Day, which is on November 11th.
With this annual event, football clubs across the country rejoice in raising vital funding and awareness for the work of The Royal British Legion. The money raised helps provide essential support to members of the armed forces community who made a sacrifice - both physically and mentally - serving their country. The Legion is the country’s largest Armed Forces charity but is completely dependent on the generosity of the public. It is their aim to provide lifelong support for both serving and ex-serving personnel and their families.
Head to https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/about-us/who-we-are to find out more about The Legion and how your contribution will have an impact.
