THE 2017 Poppy Appeal launch will take place in Benidorm on Friday October 27.

Playing an active part will be Mayor Toni Perez, Defence Attache Captain Mark Fieldsend RN and members of the British Consulate.

Representing The Royal British Legion will be National Vice Chairman Una Cleminson, The President of District North – Nigel Hamilton-Hails and District Chairman Don Cubbon.

The Parade of Standards, led by the Torrevieja Pipes and Drums starts at 12.00pm from calle Castello, proceeding along the Paseo of Levante beach to the Dais at the Rincon de Loix.

The Royal British Legion is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem, the red poppy.

The Poppy Appeal raises about half of the funds needed for The Royal British Legion’s welfare work every year. It is most visible from the last week in October, when the Legion’s lapel poppies are available to the public.

Red poppies are worn proudly by the public from the launch date until Remembrance Sunday or 11 November, whichever is later.
