BIRMINGHAM POPPY DAY TODAY
Volunteers, members of the Armed Forces and the Lord Mayor of Birmingham will be supporting this ambitious one day street collecting event.
Collectors will be on commuter buses, at railway stations, catching those flying into Birmingham Airport and creating smiles at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. They’ll make office ‘raids’ in partnership with local businesses and fill the business district with music, poppies and smiles.
A Poppy Hat competition involving local schools designing and creating hats to mark the Poppy Appeal will be judged by the Lord Mayor.
Four regimental bands will be performing throughout the city to provide upbeat tunes and help raise money for the Legion.
Come and join the fun.
