Annual collection for Royal British Legion at Stoke game

This Saturday, ahead of the Canaries' clash with Stoke City, Carrow Road will play host to the Royal British Legion and their annual Poppy Appeal ground collection.

 

There will be a number of servicemen and women around the stadium before kick-off collecting money for this worthwhile cause.

At half-time there will be also be a pitch parade from RAF Marham and the Light Dragoons – those taking part will include personnel that have served in Bosnia, Iraq and more recently Afghanistan - giving fans the chance to show their appreciation to these brave men and women as they walk round the stadium.


Then next Saturday, November 10 (the day before Remembrance Sunday) Norwich City take on Reading at the Madejski Stadium, where both teams will be wearing their strips with the poppy badge on them.

 

The Norwich City shirts will then be auctioned off on the Club's ebay page from Thursday, November 15 for 10 days. All money raised will go to the Royal British Legion. The shirts will be match-worn and signed by the specific player, and will come with a certificate of authenticity.

 

Pictured with City goalkeeper John Ruddy are representatives of the Light Dragoons, Tpr Kyle Sinclair and Tpr Tom Crouther, and from RAF Marham Flt Lt Tony Clayton and Sgt Ian Bateson.
