Poppy Campaign ! Calling all volunteers!

Dear Valued Members,

Years of connecting with the community meaningfully by Members present and past, have left us a legacy of goodwill and honouring both our heritage and our beloved fallen, that we need to now carry on and forward.

Many of us have busier lives these days, but our solemn obligation moves us to remind our community of our heritage and on whose great efforts and sacrifices we enjoy an era of relative peace and sustaining as a nation and a People.

Please do encourage one another to find just a couple of hours to help the Poppy Campaign– starting October 26 and ending the revered November 11. Your contribution can achieve much.

For further information, please call Veterans’ Service Officer or Poppy Campaign Chair, Bradford Legion
