Football is once again coming together to show its support for the Royal British Legion, with players across the country proudly wearing the poppy on their shirts in the lead up to Remembrance weekend.
Sheffield Wednesday continue to show our support for the Armed Forces community, with all players bearing the poppy in Saturday’s game against Gillingham. The match-worn shirts will be made available to purchase in a live auction straight from kick-off, with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.
Interested? Simply head over to www.matchwornshirt.co.uk/poppy from 3:00pm tomorrow when the Owls v the Gills gets underway at Hillsborough.
The game will be preceded by a minute’s silence and a rendition of ‘The Last Post’ by bugler John Lees.
A SYMBOL OF HOPE AND REMEMBRANCE
The poppy is the enduring symbol of remembrance for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and also for those who continue to defend and improve our way of life today. This resilient flower flourished in the midst of destruction, becoming a symbol of hope and a peaceful future.
AT THE HEART OF SOCIETY FOR A CENTURY
This year marks the centenary of the Royal British Legion. For 100 years the Royal British Legion has cared for our active and retired service personnel and their families by supporting them in a variety of ways.
To celebrate this milestone, fans will have the opportunity to bid on an additional range of exclusive prizes that have been kindly made available by the Royal British Legion’s partners and ambassadors.
Don’t miss this opportunity to own a unique piece of memorabilia whilst supporting the Royal British Legion’s vital work - and remember: “every poppy counts!”
