The Royal British Legion commemorates its Centenary on 15th May this year. This is an anniversary which branches in Cheshire wish to honour, particularly as the Legion was started locally in Birkenhead. The Legion was formed to support servicemen and women, ex-serving personnel and their families. In 2021, The Royal British Legion is still supporting those who serve through the Funds raised with its well-loved Poppy Appeal.

Lamp Post Poppies

To mark the event the Royal British Legion have created sponsored lamp post poppies, for a suggested donation of £5. The poppy is durable enough for them to be taken down and reused during the Poppy Appeal. If any business or individual would like to display one of these outside their premises or home to recognise this special date, please contact me and I will get one to you.

Centenary Walks

In West Cheshire it is our aim to walk a combined total of 100 miles to celebrate this anniversary. To contribute to this event we have planned a 4.5 mile walk taking in the War Memorials at Alvanley and Helsby which a small group will undertake on 15th May. Copies of the walk will be available for anyone to follow for a small donation towards the Poppy Appeal.

Pin Badges

To mark the Centenary a special commemorative pin badge has been designed. These are available through the Poppy Shop or from myself, at a cost of £4, for collectors of the badges.

Thank you to the people of Helsby for your continued support.
