A group of Havering’s youngsters did their bit to raise money for the UK’s veterans when they held their annual poppy appeal collection at a Rainham supermarket this weekend.

Cadets and staff from the Hornchurch and Upminster Sea Cadet unit played their part in helping to remember those who have died for their country by raising money for this year’s poppy appeal at the Tesco Megastore in Bridge Road on Saturday.

The unit has collected donations at the store for many years now, and always encourages local residents to dig deep.

All funds raised go towards the Elm Park Royal British Legion’s poppy appeal.

The Remembrance collection marks the end of a busy period for the unit, which has also commemorated Trafalgar Day and celebrated Halloween with a special morale-boosting event in recent weeks.
