PORTSMOUTH will officially launch its Poppy Appeal collection tomorrow afternoon.

The event will take place in the central square of Gunwharf Quays from midday.

There will be a parade of veterans and standards through the shopping centre.

Cadets from TS Active’s band will also be performing.

Last year’s appeal raised more than £100,000 for the Royal British Legion.
