Supporting the Royal British Legion
Here at Craven, we’re very active in supporting charities and we wanted to place a little focus
on one of them this month to mark the start of the Annual Poppy Appeal – the Royal British
The Royal British Legion is the country’s largest Armed Forces charity, with 235,000 members,
110,000 volunteers and a network of partners and charities helping give support wherever and
whenever it’s needed. They provide lifelong support to serving and ex-serving personnel and
From providing expert advice and guidance, to recovery and rehabilitation, through to
transitioning to civilian life – the Royal British Legion can be by their side every step of the way.
Craven’s local Knaresborough branch manages to raise over £30,000 in Poppy sales for the four
weeks of the Annual Poppy Appeal, which is an amazing achievement for us seeing as this is one
of the Legion’s smaller branches! Due to the amount of Poppies it takes to raise this kind of
money, this means lots of storage is needed.
To give the charity even more support, we provided them with some free office space and
storage facilities, including a number of our Zinc Chromate 4 Tier Shelving Bays which made
storing equipment and stock much more efficient for them.
This is a great charity doing extremely worthwhile work and Craven is pleased to have been
able to make their work a little easier by helping to give them what they need.
The 2020 Poppy Appeal will run from Thursday 22nd October to Wednesday 11th November.
