Football in the UK is once again coming together to show its support for the Royal British Legion, with players across the country proudly wearing the poppy on their shirts in the lead up to this year’s Remembrance weekend. Brentford FC continues to show their support for the Armed Forces community, with all players bearing the poppy on their shirts for the game against Norwich City yesterday, Saturday 6 November. The match-worn shirts are now available to auction, with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.
Brentford fans are reminded that an auction is already underway for our yellow away shirts worn against Burnley last week. Bids for those are raising hundreds for the Royal British Legion. The away shirt auction finishes on the 20 November while the home kit auction is due to finish on the 27 November.
A SYMBOL OF HOPE AND REMEMBRANCE
The poppy is the enduring symbol of remembrance for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and also for those who continue to defend and improve our way of life today. This resilient flower flourished in the midst of destruction, becoming a symbol of hope and a peaceful future.
AT THE HEART OF SOCIETY FOR A CENTURY
This year marks the centenary of the Royal British Legion. For 100 years the Royal British Legion has cared for our active and retired service personnel and their families by supporting them in a variety of ways. To celebrate this milestone, fans will have the opportunity to bid on an additional range of exclusive prizes that have been kindly made available by the Royal British Legion’s partners and ambassadors.
