Customers, staff and volunteers raised a momentous £9395.15 at Morrisons (Rubery) for this years Poppy Appeal. 

The locally based supermarket, which is no stranger to working within the community, launched their Poppy Appeal collection on the 30th October and concluded at 11am on the 12th November.

During that time, there were collections, poppy sales, face painting, wartime memorabilia on show, including traditionally dressed soldiers of the era with an old style army jeep parked outside the store. 

Areas of the store were patriotically decorated with British flag bunting, members of staff dressed in 1940 style costumes and customers and guests were entertained by ukelele maestro ‘Joe James Thomas’ and live renditions of popular 1940s songs sung by the locally talented ‘Helen Pearson’.

Morrisons Community Champion Jane Williams said: “The awesome customers of Morrisons Rubery raised an amazing amount for the Poppy Appeal, feeling truly blessed to work in a community that is so giving.

She added: “A massive thank you to customers and staff and well done to volunteers from Poppy Appeal British Legion for manning the stall. You’re all truly amazing”
