90 royal british legionThe Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal is a long standing tradition which plays a huge role in supporting our Armed Forces, past and present. This morning Lance Corporal Tyler Christopher of 4 Rifles launched the Poppy Appeal 2011.

Quite spectacularly 2011 celebrates the 90th anniversary of the Poppy Appeal which was founded in 1921, inspired by John McCrae’s poem Flanders’ Fields. In those 90 years a loyal following has created unprecedented support for The Royal British Legion, whose work ensures that those who have sacrificed their lives will be remembered.

Personally I have always strongly supported the Poppy Appeal and will continue to do so in the years to come. My passion towards the Poppy Appeal has been present within Bath-Knight too. Over the years we have made generous donations to the appeal, featuring the Poppy Appeal in print advertising campaigns to encourage further support.

As The Poppy Appeal celebrates 90 years here at Bath-Knight our support will continue to grow. This year we will be digitally supporting the campaign via our official website and here on my blog, hopefully our efforts will help The Royal British Legion reach their fundraising goal of £40 million.
