Staff members at the Northampton-based developer Barratt Homes have joined forces to raise funds for the Royal British Legion in honour of the World War One Centenary.
With Remembrance Sunday marking 100 years since the end of the First World War, Barratt Homes has installed a range of ‘Lest We Forget’ flags at its developments across the county.
The homebuilder has also decided to donate the month’s contributions of its dress down days to the charity.
Andrew Swindell, Managing Director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “With this year’s Armistice Day marking the Centenary of the First World War, we wanted to stretch our commitment to the Royal British Legion across the whole month.
“Whilst wearing our poppies as a symbol of remembrance, we will also be raising funds for such a wonderful charity with our multiple dress down days throughout November.
“The work carried out by the Royal British Legion is remarkable and we’re pleased to be supporting such a worthwhile cause during this period of reflection and appreciation.”
The Royal British Legion supports members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families throughout the year.
Forming a major part of the UK’s united commemoration, the charity campaigns to improve the lives of those in the Armed Forces, organise the Poppy Appeal and remember the fallen.
Barratt Homes Northampton is currently building new homes at developments across Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire.
