DEDICATED Quarry Bank Bank Royal British Legion members have been busy selling button hole roses in honour of St George’s Day to help give the 2013 poppy appeal a boost.

Volunteers, who have been selling red roses at Asda and Sainsbury's at Merry Hill, as well as Asda at Brierley Hill, were joined by Mayor of Dudley, councillor Melvyn Mottram, and his wife Michelle - the Mayoress, this morning (Monday April 22).

Branch spokesman Gloria Donovan said legion members also held a tombola yesterday (Sunday April 21) at Dartmouth Park, Sandwell, which together with the proceeds from roses has raised around £500 to date.

All money raised will go to the legion’s poppy appeal, which supports Britain’s armed forces personnel and their families.

The roses will remain on sale at the above supermarkets until tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday April 23).
