Stockport Campus has worked with the Royal British Legion to support the aims and objectives of the Poppy Appeal. these are clearly outlined in this charities own words below:-
The Legion created the Poppy Appeal to help those returning from the First World War. A century on from the start of that conflict, we’re still helping today’s Armed Forces families in much the same way, whether coping with bereavement, living with disability, or finding employment.
The poppy is a powerful symbol. It is worn to commemorate the sacrifices of our Armed Forces and to show support to those still serving today and their loved ones.
Money raised through the Poppy Appeal goes directly to our welfare work providing through life care to anyone who is currently serving in the British Armed Forces, who has previously served, and their families.
When you donate to the Poppy Appeal you help:
- bereaved families to Live On
- wounded Service men and women to Live On
- younger veterans seeking employment and housing to Live On
- older veterans needing age-related care to Live On
The school is pleased to be a partner school in this annual event.
During November a number of activities in a wider range of subjects focus on the concept of remembrance and gratitude for those that have lost their lives in the service of the country.
