Help us raise money for the Royal British Legion, make your donations and take your poppy home!
The British Embassy in Asuncion will show its support for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, an annual fundraising campaign to help British Armed Forces and their families.
From the end of October until Remembrance Day on 11 November 2014, the traditional poppy badges will be available in exchange for a donation at the British Embassy in Asuncion (Edificio Citicenter, Avenida Mariscal Lopez y Cruz del Chaco, 5th floor, Asuncion, Paraguay).
The Poppy Appeal began in 1921 and ever since has been a vital source of funding to the Royal British Legion’s work in providing financial advice, access to care and help in the home, bereavement support and many other services to former and current servicemen and women, and their families.
The poppies came into being from the John McCrae poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ and the poppy badges are traditionally made by hand in the ‘Poppy Factory’ by disabled ex-servicemen and women.
