Ed Davey and East Suffolk Lib Dems say: During Covid-19, this support for our veterans and members of the armed forces is more important than ever.

With coronavirus restrictions in place across the country, this is a difficult year for the Poppy Appeal.

Ordinarily around 40,000 volunteers help make the appeal happen. Through their dedication the Royal British Legion can continue to provide support to members and veterans of our armed forces, as well as their families.

During Covid-19, this support is more important than ever.


Our veterans are facing the terrible consequences of lockdowns and coronavirus: social isolation, financial insecurity, mental health difficulties. Many of those suffering the worst are older and in vulnerable categories.

In this dark hour we must honour those who have made such incredible sacrifices for our country, now more than ever.

So while we may see less poppies this November because of the lockdown, I urge you to back the great work of the Royal British Legion and support their vital work. Click here to make a donation.

We cannot let this terrible virus undermine our national traditions or remembrance.

This November, let us honour our veterans and members of the armed forces like we always do.
