The British Legion’s Poppy Appeal stopped by the Greggs House building to say thanks to Greggs for raising £150,000 in last years poppy appeal!
Building on the success of London Poppy Day and other events across the country the Legion is hoped to raise £15,000 in Newcastle in a single day and arranged a number of activities across the city. There were bucket collections across the city in offices, intu Eldon Square, Central Station and the city streets.
A number of Acting service personnel including a group of Gurkhas visited Greggs House over lunchtime. Two of the Gurkhas treat staff to a ceremonial War Dance, performed in the staff canteen.
