Royal British Legions’ Poppy Quest, is scheduled to take place on Sunday 18 July. It will begin at the Historical Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich and will take you on a 10k walk of discovery through the streets of London, uncovering the cities hidden gems as you go.
The event is a fun challenge to keep brains and bodies fit and healthy whilst enjoying being outdoors exploring. You can appreciate local architecture or history and even enjoy a lunch or picnic on route, it’s a recipe for smiles and creating fond memories. They provide you with a map and a quiz so you can navigate the city, answering the questions as you go to guide you from point to point. It’s not a race, you can take breaks whenever it suits, debate the questions and gradually put the kilometres behind you. It’s the perfect way to explore the history, heritage and vibrancy of London. Everyone is welcome, it’s suitable for all ages and abilities, those taking part can walk solo, with their dog or with family and friends in their social bubble.
Right now, the Royal British Legion is helping those who are isolated from family, facing homelessness, struggling to feed their children and are in financial crisis. They’ve been here for 100 years, and they’ll be here for them for as long as they are needed, but they couldn’t do this without people like you. Join their Centenary Poppy Quest team and help to ensure that those who have served and made sacrifices for us are being looked after no matter what challenges the country faces.
The £16 registration for adults includes an exclusive medal and poppy quest t shirt. Children under 18 are free so it’s a great chance to enjoy a day out exploring London together.
Poppy Quest London is a fantastic way for people to show their support for The Royal British Legion and have some fun with family and friends at the same time. Everyone taking part will be raising vital funds for service personnel, veterans and their families who are struggling through hardships, injuries and bereavements. Members of the Armed Forces community need the Legion’s help now more than ever, and we are working tirelessly to ensure that those who have served are being looked after, no matter what challenges the country faces.
