Abellio support the Poppy Appeal

Abellio support the Poppy Appeal

Abellio London is once again supporting the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal by wrapping a New Routemaster with poppies and running it around London on routes 3, 159 and 211.  
The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal is the annual appeal to raise funds for welfare work for British Service men, women, veterans and their families. 11 November marks the anniversary of the end of World War I in 1918. 
Last year TfL and London Bus Operators helped to raise £723,000 and are hoping to raise at least that this year. 
Drivers across London will observe a two minutes’ silence on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 November as a mark of respect to those lost and affected in wars. Buses will park at bus stops with engines off. Drivers will inform their customers about the silence so that they can join in if they wish.
