Bear on parade for Poppy Appeal

This year Atkins & Co were proud to support the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal with, local coordinator for our area, Lyn Lovell.

As part of our volunteering we spent a morning delivering Appeal boxes to local business’, shops and pubs including the local RNLI shop to name a few.

Bear was on Parade wearing his Poppy Bib with pride, he was an absolute star getting up close and personal with some of the veterans during the photo shoot.

We collected on two consecutive Sundays. It was a pleasure to be able to offer our time to support a great charity which provides financial, social and emotional support to members and veterans of the British Armed Forces, their families and dependants.

We very much look forward to working with Lyn and her team again next year.

Remembrance Day

In Flanders’ Fields

In Flanders’ fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders’ fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe;
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high,
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders’ Fields.
