The Royal British Legion; beyond the poppy appeal

The Royal British Legion’s poppy appeal is arguably one of the most popular fundraising drives in the country.

 Alex Blackburne spoke to Brian Clark, Chairman of the City of Lincoln branch of the Legion and Richard Foster, the Legion’s County Manager for Lincolnshire, to find out more about the nation’s leading armed forces charity.
