Volunteers are wanted in Windsor and Slough to support this year's Poppy Appeal.

The Royal British Legion needs their support to help the charity continue to provide year-round practical help and advice to the Armed Forces community.

The money raised helps the Legion to support serving personnel, veterans and their dependants in a variety of ways such as helping them to manage their debts, funding specialist equipment to aid veterans injured in conflict and sending Forces families on much-needed holidays at Poppy Break Centres.

Gaynor Dingley, community fundraiser for East Berkshire said: “None of this would be possible without our volunteers. Volunteering can provide great opportunities for those involved. It allows the chance to meet new people, learn new and transferable skills and be part of a team that helps the whole Armed Forces family and promotes understanding of Remembrance.”

Volunteers do not need to have a military background and any age can volunteer for the Legion, although if you’re under the age of 16, you’ll need to be accompanied by an adult. There are a variety of roles available. To find out more, contact Community Fundraiser Gaynor Dingley at gdingley@britishlegion.org.uk or 07823418842
