Poppy Appeal Managers Praise Medequip for Aiding in a Successful Campaign

This year, Medequip depots across the South West and Suffolk joined forces with the Royal British Legion to help with their annual Poppy Appeal.

With a true commitment to the cause, Medequip staff delivered poppies and collection boxes to many locations across their respective regions and, in some places, even had the team spend time in local supermarkets to raise money for the Appeal.

In response to the effort from each depot, the charity's Poppy Appeal Managers were quick to praise the work done by Medequip staff;

Clare Peppiatt – Regional Poppy Appeal Manager South West:

"The help given to us from Medequip for Bristol, Wiltshire and Taunton has been phenomenal. Medequip staff have manned supermarkets, delivered over 50 boxes to corporate companies, and a last-minute request to supply 19 school boxes, so we kept that support. We owe a debt of gratitude to you for your kindness, dedication and money we have raised as a result of your efforts that will support our armed forces and veteran community. Thank you all so much!"

Lily Amphlett - Poppy Appeal Manager – Cardiff and Gwent:

"Medequip's invaluable contribution to this year's Poppy Appeal in Cardiff and Gwent has been a game-changer. The Medequip staff operated stands we previously couldn't cover and played a crucial role in collecting vital donations, particularly Morrisons' Newport, where just over £5,000 was raised. Additionally, Medequip went above and beyond by delivering poppy boxes and collection pots to local schools. This is a task we didn't think we could fulfil this year due to a shortage of volunteers in the area. A special thank you to Tianna (Operations Manager, Newport) for going above and beyond to coordinate the activity. Our regular volunteers have inundated us with positive feedback, expressing their enjoyment of working alongside the Medequip team. We are excited and eager for this working relationship to continue next year."

Mandi Cox-Osbourne – Poppy Appeal Manager Suffolk:

"Thank you to Medequip and their staff for their amazing support for the 2nd year running to the Suffolk Poppy Appeal 2023; from delivering pots and boxes to communities to stepping into the breech, and covering Morrisons weekday collections, where potentially we could have lost vital donations. An amazing corporation that encapsulates community support for our Armed Forces Community (past and present). My heartfelt thanks to you all!"

General Manager for the Southwest and Suffolk, Michaela Harris, also wanted to thank her staff for their exceptional dedication to supporting the Royal British Legion's Appeal.

"I am incredibly proud of the staff across my depots for their unwavering commitment and hard work in supporting the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal. Their dedication has significantly impacted raising funds to support our armed forces and veterans, and I am truly grateful for their efforts, going above and beyond for the cause."
