Passengers at London’s biggest stations have raised £250,000 for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Day Appeal.
As part of the appeal, volunteers visited Network Rail’s nine managed stations in the capital. They were also out in force at Bristol Temple Meads and Edinburgh Waverley, and at other NR stations.
Phil Hufton, Network Rail’s managing director of network operations, said: “Network Rail has long supported the work of the Royal British Legion and proudly welcomes volunteer collectors and military personnel into our stations.”
At London King’s Cross the Spitfires Choir and Army Air Corps military band entertained crowds below a five metre-wide poppy. Other military bands played at London Paddington, Victoria and Waterloo stations.
