H&T Pawnbrokers Support The Poppy Appeal 2014 Monday 10 November 2014 PDF Print Monday 10th November 2014; UK: This year marks 100 years since the First World War. In memory of all those who have lost their lives in war, H&T Pawnbrokers has been supporting The Royal British Legion and The Poppy Appeal 2014. In all of their 187 stores, H&T Pawnbrokers staff have been selling poppies and rattling their collection tins to raise funds. Today the Head Office team held a remembrance gathering, with everyone wearing red and black and having a moment of reflection over tea and cakes. All proceeds will go to The Royal British Legion. John Nichols, H&T Pawnbrokers CEO said, ‘Last year’s Poppy Appeal raised £39 million and we hope our staff and customer donations collected throughout the UK will help The Royal British Legion to meet their £40 million target for 2014. The range of support they provide to members of the Armed Forces community – including welfare, financial assistance, and rehabilitation - is invaluable.’ H&T Pawnbrokers are keen fundraisers, so far this year they collected more than 7,000 chocolate Easter Eggs for local children’s hospitals, carried out a nationwide baton relay this summer raising over £20,000 for Cancer Research UK and also supported the Macmillan Coffee Morning, with a cheque handover planned for later this month. -- Note to editors: Contact Alesha Allen on 020 8225 2744 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. -- About H&T • H&T Pawnbrokers is the UK’s leading pawnbroking company established in 1897 in London with over 185 stores throughout the UK. • In addition to pawnbroking the stores are also able to offer jewellery valuations and repairs, jewellery purchase, foreign exchange services, personal loans, Western Union money transfer and cheque cashing. • Find us on www.handtpawnbrokers.co.uk • Follow us on Facebook and Twitter This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of H&T Pawnbrokers in the following categories: Personal Finance, Business & Finance, Public Sector, Third Sector & Legal, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
