Our London offices in Lombard Street and Holyrood Street have been fundraising for the Royal British Legion by selling poppies. Volunteers from Stackhouse Poland manned a stall in London’s Borough Market, and were also at London Cannon Street station.
The Royal British Legion organises the annual ‘Poppy Appeal’ to raise much-needed funds to support its charitable work. It is best known for its emblem, the red poppy, and every year a countrywide network of volunteers sell red lapel poppies, the UK’s symbol of remembrance.
The Poppy Appeal raises about half of the funds needed for the Royal British Legion’s welfare work. The Royal British Legion was founded by veterans after the First World War, and helps serving service personnel, veterans and their families.
The Stackhouse Poland Group has a strong history of encouraging its employees to support both national and local charities, and a variety of fundraising events take place throughout the year. We provide all employees with one paid day’s leave per year during which employees can volunteer within their local community to offer support to their chosen local charity.
