As the UK joins together with Allies from around the world to commemorate the 75th anniversary D-Day landings, Apta reflects on the £70,000 it helped to raise for The Royal British Legion from the sale of its Poppy-inspired pots and wall plaques.
Apta and the Legion have been in partnership since 2017, and in that time have designed and distributed a beautiful range. In this, their wall pots, plaques and lead lite planters are the only ones of their kind, featuring the Legion’s iconic two-petal Poppy. For every item sold, Apta donate a percentage to help the charity support current and ex-service people and their families.
Just as the D-Day ferry trip to Calais and back was set up to help the older people supported by the charity, so have Apta helped by gifting pots and planters to the Legion’s six award-winning care homes. The residents of the homes set these up as a part of their time for ‘meaningful activity’ – an essential and valuable part of their week.
With the offer open for more items to decorate the gardens of the homes, Apta maintain their position on the benefits of gardening to the well-being of the population.
