Stagecoach North East helps to support the 2015 Poppy Appeal

11 Nov 2015

Stagecoach North East is helping to support the 2015 Poppy Appeal and the Royal British Legion.

To help raise awareness of this year’s Poppy Appeal, vinyl poppies will be fitted to buses operating across the north east. The local bus operator is also encouraging its customers to tweet photos of buses with the poppies, with goody bags for their favourite ones.

Stagecoach UK Bus has also made a significant donation to ensure that poppies are provided for all drivers across the UK who wish to wear one. 

The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal helps to provide thousands of modern veterans, Service men, women and their families with vital advice and support. 

Phil Medlicott, Stagecoach North East Managing Director, said: “I’m delighted that we are able to help raise funds for such a worthy cause that is so important to many of our employees and passengers. By displaying poppies on our buses we are helping to raise awareness of the Poppy Appeal across the north east and recognise the fantastic work by the Royal British Legion to support veterans and the Armed Forces.”

The Poppy Appeal activity follows the signing of the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant in March this year by Stagecoach Group. The company has committed to support the Armed Forces Community by recognising the value of serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to the Stagecoach business and the country.
