Thought For The Day – Thursday 3rd November 2022
London Poppy Day
It is London Poppy Day today. Different cities in the United Kingdom have different poppy days.
In London today the target is to raise 1 million pounds. Railway stations and busses will be decorated.
How much can we raise at TBSHS today? Please bring your £1 for your poppy today.
The Poppy Appeal and The Royal Legion are also thinking about the environment as they aim for poppies will not contain plastic in a bid to be more eco-friendly. The Royal British Legion said: “We have been working with suppliers and the relevant experts to produce a new poppy that has minimal impact on the environment. The RBL is committed to reducing the amount of single-use plastic.”
How to use a pin with your poppy:
- Carefully take your pin. Do not touch the sharp edge.
- On the left hand side of your uniform, to symbolize closeness to the heart, take your pin and go “in and out” twice. See below.
- Then place the poppy in the middle.
- Wear your poppy in remembrance and with respect.
Please do not leave it to the Remembrance Service to obtain your poppy.
Thank you for your continued support.
