Routemaster of celebrities aim for £1m in London Poppy Appeal donations
30th October 2014

Celebrities are hoping to help raise £1 million for the poppy appeal as part of the Royal British Legion's London Poppy Day.

They will be touring London in a 1960s Routemaster encouraging the public to donate generously. 

London Poppy Day aims to raise as much money as possible in a single day for the Poppy Appeal. The money will go towards supporting the Armed Forces and their families. 

This year marks the centenary of the start of the First World War, in which there were 888,246 British and Colonial fatalities.
