Though the Royal British Legion has suspended face-to-face collections for the Poppy Appeal across Wales, but there are still many ways you can support the cause in Barry.

Paper poppies are still available to buy at the following places all while staying socially-distanced during the two-week fire-break:

Morrisons Barry

One Stop, Park Crescent, Barry

Tesco Barry, Highlight Park,

Tesco Rhoose

COOP Llantwit Major Convenience Store, Crawshay Drive, Llantwit

Llantwit Major Town Council Office

Post Office Boverton

COOP St Athan

Londis St Athan

Peterston Post Office Commemorative poppy pins are also available at One Stop, 110 Park Crescent Barry, Peterston Post Office and COOP St Athan. Lynne Woodyatt, the Community Fundraising Manager in Wales, said she encouraged anyone wanting to keep up to date in Barry should follow the RBL Poppy Appeal Barry and Area Facebook page , which will constantly be updated with more locations as volunteers distribute boxes. She also said that the safety of supporters, volunteers and staff was "top priority": "We encourage everyone to only undertake activity to support the Poppy Appeal which complies with the relevant government guidelines," said Lynne. Fundraising can also be done through a virtual Poppy Run alone or with members of your household. "You could choose to run, jog, walk take your dog however you want to complete your run to support the Poppy Appeal," said Lynne. You can register to do your run here and everyone who registers will receive a downloadable fundraising pack. Anyone who raises over £100 will receive an exclusive medallion. The Memo Arts Centre on Gladstone Road will be floodlighting the Cenotaph red from Saturday 24 October in support of the RBL and Remembrance Day. Barry Nub News has been in contact with the town council, and we are awaiting final confirmation of Remembrance Sunday events. More to follow.
