A WORCESTERSHIRE firm, a manufacturer of re-usable bags, has joined forces again with the Royal British Legion's poppy appeal.

Handy fold away pouch bags, which feature the iconic poppy, are being sold for £2.99 through The Royal British Legion’s own shop at poppyshop.org.uk.

They are part of a range of reusable shopping bags made for the Royal British Legion by Jutexpo, which has its head office at Lauriston Business and Technology Park in Salford Priors, Evesham.

Shalini Patel, retail marketing manager for The Royal British Legion, said: “This is a wonderful way for shoppers to make a donation whilst getting a strong, reusable shopping bag featuring the iconic poppy in return."

The Jutexpo jute and juco poppy bag range was launched eight years ago and has so far raised more than £1 million for the appeal.
