Bishop’s Move Exeter stores poppies for Royal British Legion

Jan 15, 2018

When Bishop’s Move Exeter Manager, Mark Neave, was approached by the Royal British Legion to help store poppies for the Poppy Appeal, he was delighted to help. Bishop’s Move is now providing indefinite free storage for poppies at its warehouse.   

Claudia Kelly, British Legion Community Fundraiser Devon North, commented: “I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff at Bishop’s Move for giving us the opportunity to use free storage at their site in Sowton, Exeter. This is a great help to those Poppy Appeal organisers who do not have the room at home to store all their much-needed stock for the appeal and will be a huge saving. Support like this is invaluable and we are grateful for the help they have so generously given. Thank you again to Bishop’s Move.”  

Mark Neave said: “The Royal British Legion provides lifelong support for the armed forces community and we are particularly proud to be able to help ex-service people in our local area to help safeguard their welfare, interests and experiences. We are delighted to be able to help such a worthy and active cause and look forward to helping out further in the forthcoming year.”  

Founded in 1921, the Legion provides essential financial, social and emotional support to currently nearly 10.5 million armed forces serving men, women, veterans and their families. The first Poppy Appeal was held that year, with the first Poppy Day on 11 November, 1921 and continues today to ensure that the ex-service community voice does not go unheard.
