Saxe Coburg Team up with Mercedes-Benz of Poole, Abstract Artist Sally Mackness & the Royal British Legion to Support This Year’s Poppy Appeal

Oct 11, 2016 | Blog

Throughout October and November Saxe Coburg is supporting the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal. You can pick up your poppy from our flagship office based in Canford Cliffs.

We’ve teamed-up with Mercedes-Benz of Poole and abstract artist Sally Mackness to create awareness for the Poppy Appeal. It’s a cause dear to our heart and one that we are proud to be supporting this year. Not only will there be collection points in each of our sister-company offices, Lovett International, we are also displaying bespoke, original artworks created by Sally as a fitting tribute to Remembrance. Each one of these is on sale within our offices, with 50% of all profits going directly to the Hampshire South and Isle of Wight Poppy Appeal.

Sally unveiled the first of her 1,560 poppy artworks in July. This number represents the number of days that the Great War lasted. Sally has created three variations on a theme and the paintings are entitled Remembrance (an abstract), Poppies and Flower Pop: Poppies. 

What’s more, Saxe Coburg is using a snapshot of Sally’s artwork on every single For Sale and To Let slip to help showcase our support for the Poppy Appeal. Over the coming weeks we will be announcing an exciting competition in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz of Poole to a win a car for the week. This is a brand-new E-class that you could own for the week, yes week!

Keep an eye on our website and social media channels on how to enter and win.

The money raised from the Poppy Appeal goes towards the Legion’s work with current Serving personnel, Veterans and their families, including innovative dementia care, theatre recovery projects, world-leading research on blast injury studies, and Legion owned seaside break centres. It’s not hard to see why we wish to support such an amazing cause.

You can show your support by following us on Twitter or by liking us on Facebook – not to mention popping in for your poppy! We hope to see you soon.
