Poppy Appeal home
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, the First World War ended. People wanted to remember those who had given their lives during the fighting and an American War secretary, Molina Michael, inspired by the poem In Flander´s Fields by John McCrae, began selling poppies to raise money for the ex-Service community. It is said that poppies were the only thing that would grow on the bloodied battlefields of Northern France after the war.
Every year, the members of The Royal British Legion in Spain work tirelessly to collect money for the Annual Poppy Appeal around the time of Remembrance Day on November 11th. The money raised goes towards providing financial, social and emotional support to those who have served and are currently serving in the Armed Forces.
You can make a donation online at: www.britishlegion.org.uk or you can pick up a poppy at the Metropolitan office between 10am and 5pm any weekday. We're at C/Enric Granados 48, entl. 2.
