Poppy Appeal 2015 - a Letter from Suffolk County Council

Thursday, 29th October 2015.

Dear Sir,

Poppy Appeal

On behalf of the County Council, and Mayors and Chairmen of the Borough and District Councils throughout Suffolk, I write to urge everyone in Suffolk to support the 2015 Poppy Appeal of the Royal British Legion.

This year, as we continue to mark the centenary of the First World War and the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, The Royal British Legion is asking everyone to support the Poppy Appeal for the memory of the fallen and the future of the living. Additionally, we are ever mindful of the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces, in more recent conflicts. The debt we owe to the brave people who protect our country and its way of life is as real today as it ever was.

The RBL created the Poppy Appeal to help those returning from the First World War. Over a century on from the start of that conflict, they are still helping today’s Armed Forces families in much the same way, whether coping with bereavement, living with disability or finding employment.

The poppy is a powerful symbol – it is worn to commemorate the sacrifices of our Armed Forces and to show support to those still serving today, and their loved ones.

I ask everyone to show special generosity in supporting the work of the Royal British Legion whose services are so vital to the care and welfare of our dedicated service men and women and their families.

Yours faithfully
Jane Storey
Chairman, Suffolk County Council

On behalf of:
Councillor Glen Chisholm, Mayor of Ipswich
Councillor Patrick Chung, Mayor of St. Edmundsbury
Councillor Nick Ridley, Chairman of Babergh District Council
Councillor David Bimson, Chairman of Forest Heath District Council
Councillor Derek Osborne, Chairman of Mid Suffolk District Council
Councillor Susan Harvey, Chairman of Suffolk Coastal District Council
Councillor Bruce Provan, Chairman of Waveney District Council
