Kent Poppy Appeal
We are the nation's leading Armed Forces charity providing care and support to all members of the Armed Forces past and present and their families.
The public are generally aware of this during the Poppy Appeal and Remembrance period from late October to mid November and we receive fantastic support with the majority of people wearing poppies.
But our work for our Armed Service family contimues every day, and so we hope to have your support throughout the year. This can take many forms from a simple donation to the thrills of skydiving.
