This year the British International School Ukraine traditionally supported the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and raised a total of UAH 2051.00.
Remembrance Day, sometimes known informally as Poppy Day, is a memorial day observed on 11 November in many countries to remember the members of their armed forces who have given their lives in the line of duty.
The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s fundraising campaign held every year in November, the period of Remembrance. Members of the public wear the paper poppy on their chest as a symbol of Remembrance: to remember the fallen service men and women killed in conflicts. Paper poppies are distributed in return for donations to help support the work that is being done for the service men and women, veterans and their families, whether coping with bereavement, living with disability or finding employment.
