Remembering for this years Poppy Appeal

To mark Remembrance Sunday and to raise money for this year’s Poppy Appeal we have held a ‘Dress down day’ for all staff at Staffordshire County Council. In exchange for a donation staff got into their ‘non work’ clothes for the day. All money raised was gift aided too – make sure you all do this too, every penny makes a difference!

The poppy appeal is charity close to my heart and I think it is so important that we not only honour those who fought in the two World Wars but also those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those that are fighting today.
I attended a very nice Remembrance service at my local church in Uttoxeter with my family – thanks to everyone at the church who made the service so welcoming.

Next week I am off to Belgium for a partnership conference but will also going to Ypres for a special memorial service which will bring people from all over Europe together to remember. You can donate money online to this year’s poppy appeal here
