Throughout November, all six branches of Coventry-based Henry Ison & Sons showed their support for the Royal British Legion, by acting as a collection point for donations for the charity’s 2012 Poppy Appeal.
Henry Ison & Sons also donated a wreath in honour of the fallen soldiers and Teresa Lees and Maurice Barnett from the funeral director joined residents, dignitaries and war veterans on Remembrance Sunday to lay the wreath on the war memorial monument at the War Memorial Park in Coventry.
Teresa said: “Every year we support the Royal British Legion as our way of showing our appreciation to the Armed Forces. It is a charity that we greatly admire and one that we will continue to support in the future.”
The initiative is one of many that the Coventry funeral director holds every month. The teams from all branches pick local and national charities to support throughout the year.
The Royal British Legion was chosen for the work it does locally, as well as across the UK, to provide welfare, comradeship, representation and remembrance for the Armed Forces community.
