Need is still great

The Royal British Legion Poppy Day is on November 10. We all know how much and how many depend on The Royal British Legion and a successful Poppy Day appeal.

The need for help is still as great as ever and we need to show our support for all members of the armed forces, retired members and their families.

Devon has always given generously. I am confident this year we will all “wear our poppy with pride” – and with thankfulness.
