It’s that time of year where we will don the red poppy of Remembrance. To help raise awareness, funding and continue the story of Remembrance, Saxe Coburg in Canford Cliffs, is embarking on a Poppy Appeal campaign of their own.
The company started their Poppy Appeal drive in 2016 and after huge success have decided to make it an annual initiative. Saxe Coburg has teamed up with Mercedes-Benz in Poole, the Royal British Legion and local artist Sally Mackness to make it all happen.
The11th of November is about remembering those fallen in WW1 and WW2, in addition to individuals and families who have been affected in conflict and crisis since. Help us give something back to the Armed Forces community,” says CEO Maximillian de Kment.
Saxe Coburg has also branded a Mercedes SL 500 with an eye-catching poppy design to help promote the message of ‘lest we forget.’
The Royal British Legion launched their national campaign on 25th October, and Saxe Coburg were invited to join the Dorset branch for the inaugural ceremony. This year, the Legion has launched their Silent Soldier concept alongside Saxe Coburg’s campaign. This is whereby ‘pop-up’ soldiers will appear in random places around the county to remind us of the forthcoming day. Be sure to keep an eye out!
Saxe Coburg hope you’ll help to show your support by popping into the Saxe Coburg office to pick up your poppy and wear it with pride. Poppies are on sale from now until 11th November.
