The Royal British Legion Poppy remains a symbol that is recognized across generations. Now in its 91st year, the Legion’s ever poignant mission continues to safeguard the welfare, interests and memory of those who are serving or who have served in the Armed Forces. This year’s Poppy Appeal will focus on support for the Afghan generation of the Armed Forces family. Last year, a fantastic £39.5 million was raised nationally, and despite the recession, Harrow residents contributed a magnificent sum of nearly £62,185.09

As First Citizen of the Borough, The Mayor urges all residents to support the 2012 Poppy Appeal in whatever way you can to enable the Legion to meet the ever increasing needs of the serving and ex-service community.
