It has been an honour to support the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal 2018.

The county really has come together in our pledge to always remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. We have seen many wonderful tributes from Slimbridge, Dursley, Stonehouse, Cirencester, and Minchinhampton, to name a few. It has been lovely to see the community coming together to remember those we have lost.

We decided to bring poppies to Nelson Street, and decorated our windows with poppies made by our office team. It has been lovely to see people taking the time to stop and view our display.

We've heard some wonderful stories from our carers who have taken the time to discuss Remembrance Day with our customers. All of our carers who were out working yesterday joined the two minutes silence with their customers, some of whom served in WW2, and remembered family, friends and those they had fought alongside.

We will never forget the sacrifice made by so many.
