Poppy Appeal Launched

Poppy Appeal Launched

The annual Poppy Appeal kicked off this morning (Monday, 10 October) when Her Excellency the Governor Helen Kilpatrick met with members of the Cayman Islands Veterans Association.

The Governor was pinned with the appeal’s first poppy by former United States Marine Shadden McLaughlin and also made the first donation into a collection box.

The ceremony to launch the appeal took place in the lobby of the Government Administration Building on Elgin Avenue, where there will be a collection until the appeal closes on Remembrance Sunday (13 November).

All money raised in the Poppy Appeal goes towards welfare for veterans in the Cayman Islands. Donations can be made to collection boxes at many locations in Grand Cayman and the Sister Islands.
