TfL has decorated these tube roundels with poppies

It’s Remembrance Day on Monday and Transport for London has decorated some of its Underground roundels with poppies to mark the anniversary. 

This is the second year that TfL has revamped the roundels in recognition of The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal. Last year ten Underground and four Overground stations had a poppy-printed makeover.

This year the campaign is bigger and bolder, with 25 stations getting floral transformations. Stephen Fry and 2016’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ winner Lance Corporal Richard Jones are set to record tube announcements and will join volunteers, servicemen and servicewomen stationed at different points across TfL’s Underground network in the run-up to Armistice Day to raise money for The Royal British Legion.

Vernon Everitt, TfL's Managing Director, Customers, Communication and Technology, commented his organisation's ‘longstanding relationship’ with The Royal British Legion and said it is ‘extremely proud’ to support it.

TfL has also adorned some buses with poppies, and keep a look out for the Santander bikes that have been poppyfied, too!
