Capital Radio and the RBL Poppy Appeal

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by TheSnake, Nov 8, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Whilst listening to Johny Vaughan on Capital Radio this morning, he went into a mild rant about lack of Poppies, and lack of publicity surrounding this years Poppy appeal. He also mentioned this......If you are struggling to find a Poppy seller this year, Capital Radio have set up the following :

    Send a text message with only the word : POPPY
    Number :85552
    This text will cost you £1.50
    You will then receive a Poppy back as a screensaver for your mobile.
    Oh yes, ALL of the £1.50 will be donated to the RBL Poppy Appeal !!

    The RBL say they had 10 times more calls yesterday alone then they usually receive on a normal day !!

    So, if you are struggling to get a Poppy give this a whirl

    Always a problem getting poppies in the city, I now work in the sticks and every shop sells them. In fact you look out of place without one, in double fact you look out of place if ethnic but I dont think that has too much bearing on sales. I struggled for 2 years to get Metronet HQ to sell them in their foyer, I resorted to getting them from the Guardsmen at Victoria but then only very close to the weekend.
