Carmarthen Journal - - News -

CAR­MARTHEN­SHIRE Coun­cil is urg­ing lo­cal res­i­dents to sup­port the 2018 Bri­tish Le­gion Poppy Ap­peal.

Coun­cil chair­man Mansel Charles has of­fered the coun­cil’s sup­port to the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion’s Poppy Ap­peal and has agreed that pop­pies can be placed for sale in coun­cil premises ahead of na­tional com­mem­o­ra­tions on Sun­day.

The poppy is seen as a sym­bol of re­mem­brance and hope, and is worn by mil­lions of peo­ple ev­ery year.

Sales of poppy mer­chan­dise helps ben­e­fit those cur­rently serv­ing in our Armed Forces, vet­er­ans, their fam­i­lies and de­pen­dants.

Mr Charles said: “I’m pleased to of­fer the coun­cil’s sup­port for the Poppy Ap­peal in re­mem­brance of the sac­ri­fice made by so many and to raise funds for the Bri­tish Le­gion which con­tin­ues to de­liver im­por­tant wel­fare ser­vices.”
