Extra sellers are needed to help the Poppy Appeal flower
MORE poppy sellers are still needed to help support our Armed Forces in the run-up to Remembrance Day.
So far 25 people of all different walks of life have responded to the rallying call through the Evening Post for volunteers to give up a morning, afternoon or evening to sell the emblem.
However, a total of 100 volunteers are needed to help make the Poppy Appeal a success in Swansea this year.
Phill Flower, community fundraiser for the Royal British Legion, said he had been pleased with the response so far, but he would be glad if extra people came forward and offered to give up their time to help.
He said: "It's going very well but we have a fifth of venues still open for collectors to fill in the gaps.
"Any new volunteers will be able to help those working on their own.
"We have young and old working together.
"It's the centenary of the First World War next year and we know the commitment that the Armed Forces are giving in Afghanistan."
He added: "I am asking people to give up a few hours and show their support for our forces."
This year's Poppy Appeal is being officially launched in Swansea on Friday, October 25.
Anyone looking to volunteer their time, whether that is just a few hours, to selling poppies for the appeal should contact Mr Flower on 07814 177193 or email email@example.com
A collection for the Poppy Appeal will take place at the Libertys Stadium when the Ospreys take on the Newport Gwent Dragons on Friday, October 25, at 7.05pm.
Collectors will also be at the Neath v Pontypridd match at The Gnoll on Saturday, October 26, at 6.45pm.
