Poppy Collecting Launch in Barnsley

On Saturday the 26th October, cadets and staff assisted the Barnsley Branch of the Royal British Legion with the start of the Poppy Appeal in Barnsley Town Centre. This is an event that signals the beginning of the Remembrance Period and is carried out across the whole country!

All the cadets were a credit to themselves and the Squadron. Despite the poor weather, all the cadets were high spirited throughout the day and respectful to members of the public.

The wearing of a poppy commemorates and pays respect to all members of the Armed Forces both past and present who have sacrificed their life and currently for the freedom of future generations.

Well Done to everyone who participated this weekend. We are looking forward to supporting the Barnsley Branch of the Royal British Legion throughout this years Remembrance Season.
