The November appeal raised £11,195 and as one of the Royal British Legion’s long-standing corporate partners, Sainsbury’s invited volunteers to its Recreation Way store to collect the money.

A number of Royal British Legion volunteers visited the store in January to be presented with the cheque.

Becca Davis, store manager, said: We are thrilled to have raised such a huge amount for the Royal British Legion and look forward to seeing what the future holds for the 24-year partnership.”

The poppy appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every year in November.

Money raised is used to provide lifelong support for the armed forces community - serving men and women, veterans, and their families.
