People in Derbyshire are being urged to wear their poppy with pride.

The call came from Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Derbyshire, William Tucke, as he launched the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal at the Proact Stadium on Sunday.

He said: “Every donation received for a poppy will make a real difference to the lives of armed forces’ families.”

Charles Byrne, the Royal British Legion’s director of fundraising, added: “We recognise the strength of mothers, fathers, partners and kids in armed forces’ families, who serve alongside their loved ones every single day. We’re encouraging people to dig deep for the appeal.”
