“Each year an army of volunteers throughout the nation distribute the Royal British Legion’s iconic paper poppies, collecting donations in return to help support the vital work the Royal British Legion do for the Armed Forces community.

The paper poppy is a symbol of Remembrance every November to remember the fallen Service men and women killed in conflict.

For many people, Remembrance is associated with the fallen of the First and Second World Wars. While we will always remember and never forget them, there is a new generation of veterans.  The Legion wants to raise awareness of these veterans and Service personnel that need our support.

The Legion help members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, Reservists, veterans and their families all year round and campaign to improve their lives.  The Legion provides information, advice and guidance to help the Armed Forces community find and access the support they need with online self-help tools, helplines and information and advice centers in many communities.

All members of the Legion share the common cause of supporting our Service community, now and for the rest of their lives.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Legion.  If you can help with the Poppy Appeal or wish to become a member of the Didcot Branch of the Royal British Legion please contact the Secretary.  Contact details above.”
