Wearing your poppy with pride in Bradford
6:30pm Saturday 2nd November 2013 in News
Bradfordians are being urged to share their reasons for wearing their poppy with pride in the run-up to Remembrance Day.
The Poppy Appeal campaign runs until November 11 and the Telegraph & Argus wants to hear from readers why they wear their poppy with pride.
This year, the Royal British Legion is aiming to raise £37 million during thea appeal. Those declaring their support include Rob Warm, Head of External Affairs and Member Relations, National Housing Federation.
He said: “I am proud to wear a poppy to remind me of people, past and present, who make enormous sacrifices for the benefit of us all. Housing has a strong link with the military – nearly 100 years ago Lloyd George called for homes fit for heroes returning from World War I. That strong link between the enormous contribution that people make in the military, with the sort of community that we want to all live in at home, still persists. And the poppy is a really strong example of that – connecting past and present.”
