Sainsbury’s Waterlooville poppy appeal

Veterans crisis

Veterans ‘thankful’ for help

Have your say

Poppy collectors will be at Sainsbury’s Waterlooville until Sunday to raise money for The Royal British Legion.

The store will also have the 7th Platoon Hampshire Army Cadets collecting and bag packing alongside The Royal British Legion.

There will be poppy-inspired products on sale, with all profits going to The Royal British Legion.

The range will include two poppy jute bags, tea towels and two flower bouquets.

For the first time, online customers will get the opportunity to make a donation to The Royal British Legion and receive a stick-on paper poppy for any order until November 11.

Sainsbury’s Waterlooville store manager Phil Bridgwater said: ‘I’d like to thank our customers for their kind donations and support every year, the Waterlooville community has been really supportive of the Poppy Appeal.’

After Armistice Day, customers can also choose to recycle their poppies at the customer service desk from November 12-24. All collected poppies will go to the Royal British Legion.
