Remembrance events in Haringey
A number of events are taking place across Haringey to mark Remembrance Day.
The Mayor of Haringey Councillor Gina Adamou has pinned on her poppy in support of the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal and urged other residents to do the same.
The Poppy Appeal runs until Remembrance Sunday and money raised goes towards the Royal British Legion’s welfare and benevolent work in support of serving and ex-service people and their families.
Cllr Adamou said:
“I am very proud to wear a poppy and support the Royal British Legion’s poppy appeal.I hope that Haringey residents will join me in paying tribute to those serving the country today, as well as honouring the countless service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice and given their lives in service."
Poppies and donation boxes can be found in each of Haringey’s libraries, and on the reception desks of Haringey Civic Centre and River Park House, High Road, Wood Green.
