National Express supports poppy appeal
National Express is once again supporting he Royal British Legion’s annual poppy appeal.
As an official partner of the charity, the operator will be backing this year’s campaign to pay special tribute to the men and women who served and sacrificed in the Second World War.
For two weeks, tickets issued across the National Express West Midlands network of 1,600 buses will display a text number so passengers can easily donate to the poppy appeal. Its coaches will bear the poppy logo during November and on Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day, the annual two minutes’ silence will be observed on coaches, buses, and in stations and depots where possible and safe to do so.
Tom Stables, Managing Director of National Express UK, said: “I’m proud that we are continuing to support this great cause, particularly at such a difficult time. It’s a privilege to be able to carry the poppy logo on our vehicles and I’m sure our customers will help with fundraising where they can. We’ve raised over £35,000 in the last 5 years and hope we can add to this figure again.”
