Martin, one of our Housing Estate Management Officers, took time out of his day job to volunteer with The Royal British Legion on Thursday 2 November 2017, which is Leeds’ Poppy Day.

Martin said, “I spent the full day carrying out office and street collections throughout Leeds city centre; selling poppies to members of the public along with a number of other volunteers and members of the armed forces.

“Lots of the offices in Leeds centre opened their doors to allow us in to collect donations and many staff gave very generously. I feel privileged helping to raise £1,000s and for a great cause – The Royal British Legion.”

Well done Martin I know what joy you get from volunteering – Ken Ingram

There are heaps of opportunities to volunteer in Leeds, is a great website to find one that suits you.

If you’d like to support the Poppy Appeal, you can make a donation and pick up a poppy in the GATE or Housing Office.
