POPPY sellers from the Royal British Legion will be collecting to help the armed forces community at Sainsbury's in Emersons Green.
The dedicated men and women will be at the store from Saturday October 29 to Friday November 11, when the store will observe Armistice Day at 11am.
Store spokeswoman Tracy Cannard said: "We will be raising the standard at 11am for this year's Poppy Appeal. Please come along and show your support."
* The store is asking customers who knit to bring in baby blankets and hats for the special care baby unit at Southmead Hospital.
Also welcome are warm scarves, which will be passed on to the homeless in Bristol.
Any donations should be brought to Tracy Cannard on the last Wednesday of each month who will then forward the items to the relevant charities.
