Councillor Oonagh Moulton, Leader of Merton Conservatives and one of the Conservative poppy sellers said:
“It was a great honour to be part of London Poppy Day. The Royal British Legion does incredible work helping former members of our Armed Forces and their families, and my colleagues and I were pleased to be able to help in some small way with this year’s fundraising activities.
“Thank you to all the commuters at Wimbledon station who kindly stopped to buy a poppy. With this being the 100th anniversary year since the start of World War One, the 2014 Remembrance events take on an even greater poignancy. As a community, it is crucial that we solemnly remember the many men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our freedom.”
