Poppy Appeal Activities - Chelsea Match

26 October 2018

Burnley Football Club will once again be proud to partner the Royal British Legion and the Premier League in supporting the 2018 Poppy Appeal, at this weekend's game against Chelsea

Numerous activities are planned to raise money and awareness for military veterans and current service men and women.

Before the match there will be numerous members of the Royal British Legion raising money for the Poppy Appeal, on the footprint outside Turf Moor and in the Fanzone area, running a bucket collection as well as selling Poppies. If you have some spare change please offer what you can.

Also in the Clarets Store, for just £3 you can get your hands on the special edition 2018 Burnley FC Poppy Pin badge, all proceeds of which go to the Royal British Legion.
