FUNDRAISERS have been urged to help the Royal British Legion celebrate its 90th birthday next month.

The charity is marking the milestone with the Great Poppy Party Weekend from June 10 to 12.

The legion hopes the celebration events will raise £1m for wounded soldiers.

West Yorkshire county chairman John Sayles said: “We are inviting everyone to join in the celebrations by throwing a party in recognition of this momentous year.”
