Airbus employee Kate Rodriguez, Welfare and Counselling Manager, who has been raising funds at the Airbus site in Filton for more than 20 years, had a special visit from the Royal British Legion to collect donations for the Annual Poppy Appeal 2014.

Kate Rodriguez said:

“I feel it is important to support the Poppy Appeal as it is the one time a year we can honour those who have died and remember those who are currently protecting our national safety. In my job I meet many former members of the Armed Forces working here, many of whom have experienced conflict themselves.”

Every year Kate puts poppies and money boxes in café areas all around the Airbus site to raise as much money as possible.

The Royal British Legion’s Annual Poppy Appeal was first created to help soldiers returning from World War One and is now used to provide essential welfare work for the Armed Forces, veterans and their families.
