Mobile phone users are once again being asked to take part in this year's poppy appeal. Tanla Mobile has been chosen by The Royal British Legion to enable people to make a donation via their mobile phone.
By texting the word ‘POPPY' to 80848, a donation of £1.50 will be made to a campaign that provides financial, social and emotional support to those who served and are currently serving in the Armed Forces, along with their families. In return anyone who does so will receive a poppy for their mobile phone wallpaper. It is hoped that this method will help encourage a younger generation to contribute.
The Royal British Legion will also be including the text number on all posters that will be put up across the country. In addition, donations of up to £10 can be made through both 3 and Vodafone's internet portals via www.poppy.org, using Payforit billing.
