Sainsbury's has been supporting The Royal British Legion for 24 years, allowing our volunteers and colleagues to sell poppies in their stores for our Poppy Appeal.
In 2017, the retailer raised more than £3.4 million through store collections and sales of exclusive merchandise, donating all profits to the Legion.
For many years, colleagues have been actively involved in the partnership, dedicating their own time to plant crosses at our Fields of Remembrance and volunteer at our City Poppy Days.
The supermarket is the only place to offer poppy recycling after Remembrance Sunday, enabling us to save vital funds by reusing or recycling the poppies donated.
