Royal Air Force Air Cadets and staff from 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron have been back out in the streets of their home town helping with the RBL Poppy Appeal collection.
Over the past three weeks, the cadets joined other Poppy Appeal collectors as the general public made donations towards the Nuneaton & Stockingford Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
The Nuneaton & Stockingford Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal organiser, Archie Smith said, “Last year the generosity of Nuneaton 's citizens saw a record collection. We hope to equal if not beat last year’s record this time”.
He added, “Conflicts end but the caring doesn't and I would take this opportunity to thank the cadets for their assistance in trying to help us achieve our goal”.
Flt Lt Paul Hincks Officer Commanding 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron said, “The cadets always welcome the opportunity to help the RBL with the Poppy Appeal. It’s important that the younger generation understand the real meaning of the poppy collection and why Remembrance Day is so significant”.
“I would take this opportunity to thank all the Cadets and Staff for giving up their time to help with the collection and also thank the people on Nuneaton for their generously. We are so glad to have been able to do our bit to help the Royal British Legion, to safeguard the welfare, interests and memory of those who have and are still serving in the Armed Forces”.
