What is our involvement?
We are delighted to announce we are supporting the British Legion’s Poppy Appeal this year. With the support of EWI Pro, we are delighted to announce that we will be donating £1 for every £100 spent on EWI Pro products through EWI Store directly to the Poppy Appeal.
Impacts of Covid-19 on the charity
While COVID has impacted all of us this year, much of the fundraising carried out by the British Legion is reliant on face to face collections and with the COVID restrictions in place this has had a dramatic impact on what they have been able to do.
What is The Poppy Appeal?
The British Legion help members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families.
While discussing our charity partner this year, several of our employees were vocal with regards to their support of the Poppy Appeal.
Shane- “I’ve joined British Legion to support our past and present veterans. It’s important to me to carry on collecting for the British Legion as they supported my family, when my grandfather was killed in
El-alamein on 27th of November 1941, at age 23.”
Matt- “I am delighted that EWI Store are supporting the Royal British Legion Poppy appeal this year as this is very close to me having personally served in the Royal Navy as a Gunner and coming from a family with many members that served within the British Armed forces.”
Joe- “As an ex Royal Navy Stoker I fully support adopting the RBL. I have ex shipmates who used their services after the Falkland War and their support was vital.”
