Volunteers began selling poppies on Sunday

Poppy collectors in Bexleyheath began collecting money for the Royal British Legion on Sunday, in the build up to Remembrance Sunday.

There will be poppy themed items for sale at the Sainsbury’s in Bexleyheath, raising money for the nation’s biggest Armed Forces charity.

Among the items are a trolley tokens, tote bags, tea towels and travel mugs.

All profits will be donated to the Royal British Legion, with collectors at the store until November 11.

Sainsbury’s Bexleyheath store manager Simon Tuffill said: “I’d like to thank our customers for their kind donations and support every year, the Bexley community has been really supportive of the Poppy Appeal.

“Our store looks forward to all the activities we have planned to support this fantastic cause.”
