Keighley school pupils are ambassadors for fallen heroes
4:30pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in Keighley
Holy Family School students have become ambassadors for the Fallen as Remembrance Day approaches.
The Keighley school’s Junior Leadership Team has taken on the task of selling poppies to fellow students.
Assistant headteacher Eileen Llewelyn said the Junior Leadership Team was made up of hand-picked students from across the school.
She added: “Their responsibility is to act as ambassadors for the school and bring about improvements after listening to students in their year groups.”
Members of the 18-strong team greet visitors to the school, as well as representing Holy Family at events in the wider community.
The Poppy Appeal will be launched in Keighley at 10am on Saturday, as Royal British Legion members gather at the Poppy Shop in the Airedale Shopping Centre.
People are invited to go along to show their support to help the appeal raise even more than last year’s £33,000 proceeds.
A veterans’ badge was presented to Sutton resident Malcolm Smith during the launch of the Poppy Appeal in Skipton on Monday.
Mr Smith served as a corporal in the RAF from 1959 to 1962.
