Schoolchildren from Silverdale St Johns CE Primary School launched the Royal British Legion’s Lancashire Poppy Appeal.

Helen Mason, veteran and community fundraiser for The Royal British Legion said: “The Poppy Appeal could not survive without the tireless work of our volunteers and we are so please that the schoolchildren in Silverdale will be learning first hand about Remembrance.” Director of fundraising Claire Rowcliffe said: ““We’re encouraging people to dig deep to help raise £43 million.”
