Portsmouth’s Poppy Appeal was launched today. City MP Stephen Morgan added with Deputy Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Cllr David Fuller.
Stephen Morgan MP said:
“It was privilege to attend the launch of Portsmouth’s Poppy Appeal for 2018 down at Gunwharf Quay today.
Sunday November 11 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War.
So it is only fitting that this year we specifically say ‘Thank You’ to the First World War generation who served, sacrificed and changed our world.
Thousands of volunteers will help sell and distribute paper poppies in the following days. I will be out and about in our city doing my bit too.
I want to take this opportunity to offer my appreciation to those in Portsmouth doing our city proud by volunteering with the appeal and in respect of all those who sacrificed their lives for a more peaceful world”.
