Town unveil special poppy pin to help raise funds for Royal British Legion

Fleetwood Town are delighted to launch a poppy pin once again for 2021 featuring the club’s badge, to raise money for The Royal British Legion.

This special edition poppy pin, which features the club badge and the iconic poppy, side by side, gives Cod Army fans and members of the community a unique way of honouring the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces, veterans, and their families, and supporting the 2021 Poppy Appeal.

Andy Pilley, Chairman, and Owner of the club, said: “All of us at Fleetwood Town are huge supporters of the Royal British Legion and the Poppy Appeal, and we’re delighted to be able to support the fundraising with our very own FTFC Poppy pins. I shall be wearing mine with pride and would encourage all our fans to do the same.”

Established in 1921, The Royal British Legion is a charity that provides life-long support to members and veterans of the British Armed Forces and their families. They are the national custodian of Remembrance, organising the annual Poppy Appeal, and campaigning to improve the lives of the Armed Forces community.

Priced at £4.99, the special edition pin badge is available from the club shops at Highbury and Poolfoot, or online, from Friday this week. All profits will go to The Royal British Legion.

Wear your poppy with pride and show your support for your team and troops!
