Matthew James ships poppies to Spain

Nov 19, 2013
Expats living in Southern Spain wore their poppies with pride on this year’s Remembrance Day thanks in part to the generosity of Matthew James Removals.

The Kent-based company, which specialises in moves to and from Spain, transported thousands of poppies free of charge from the Royal British Legion’s workshops in Richmond upon Thames to the company’s warehouse in Mijas near Malaga for distribution throughout the south of Spain.

“Our vehicles are running between the UK and Spain all the time so it was no trouble at all to take a few extra boxes, especially for such a good cause,” said UK Depot Manager Steve Turner. “We were happy to do our bit.”

In 2012 the worldwide Poppy Appeal raised over £40,000,000 and made it possible to answer more than 165,000 calls for help from Armed Forces families. The appeal in Southern Spain raised over 88,000 Euros for beneficiaries living in Spain.
