POPPIES are on sale across the Costa Blanca and the Royal British Legion hopes people will wear one with pride.
Royal British Legion launches its annual Poppy Appeal in Benidorm today ahead of Remembrance Sunday on 12th November.
The charity has distributed boxes of poppies through a network of businesses and hopes people will support its work.
The Legion spends £1.3 million a week on the Armed Forces community. A spokesman said: “By making a donation for your poppy you are supporting those who have dedicated their lives to serving their country.
“Please wear your poppy with pride and give generously to help the charity’s continuing welfare work.”
And many of the Royal British Legion Branches across the district will be holding Remembrance Services; to find out details of services in the region visit the website www.britishlegion.org.uk/counties/spain-north and click ‘Remembrance Services 2017’, or call 648 860 251.
Anyone needing assistance or advice can contact the Legion’s Community Support Co-ordinator on 676 451 780 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
