Singing trio The Victory Rollers swing in to help Belfast Poppy Day bloom

By Staff Reporter

This year's Belfast Poppy Day is set to go off with a war-time swing with help from three-part harmony group The Victory Rollers singing classics from The Andrews Sisters, Vera Lynn and Glenn Miller Band.

The Royal British Legion will host the big day on Saturday October 28, when scores of enthusiastic volunteers are expected to take to the streets of Belfast city centre to collect funds for the Poppy Appeal.

The money will help support veterans, serving personnel and their families.

Last year, Belfast Poppy Day raised more than £5,000 in one day.

The RBL Pop-In Centre in Fountain Street will be the centre of operations for the event.

The Poppy Appeal raised more than £1.3m in Northern Ireland last year. The funds raised will help provide lifelong support to the Armed Forces community.
