David Beckham has joined forces with the Chelsea Pensioners to promote the save the Poppy Appeal.
This year has been an extraordinarily year so far and the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the world in many ways. As the UK struggles with the rising number of Coronavirus cases and pensioners are confined to their houses once again, the Poppy Appeal is set to experience never seen before issues.
With Remembrance Day approaching, the familiar site of Poppy Sellers has this year been banned. Becks has stepped up to support the save the Poppy Appeal and explains that “it is more important than ever that we support our veterans”. The 45-year-old ex-Man United player spent the day with the Chelsea Pensioners and spent time getting to know them and also toured some of the pensioners’ allotments. Becks was responsible throughout the visit and followed all distancing precautions and before visiting the Chelsea Pensioners he took a COVID-19 test.
Although it will be possible to buy Poppies at Lidl, Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Tesco stores, this year some 40,000 Poppy Sellers will be missing from the streets due to rules surrounding controlling the Coronavirus.
