Boris Bikes Raise Money for London Poppy Day

If you haven’t yet embraced London’s cycle hire scheme, tomorrow would be the perfect time to try it: Barclays is donating £1 to the Royal British Legion for all Boris Bike journeys made on 3 November.

Some of the Barclays Cycle Hire bikes will even be wearing their own poppy, as the usual branding space will be replaced with poppy stickers.

The initiative is part of London Poppy Day, raising money for members of the British Armed Services, past and present, and their dependents. Volunteers will be collecting donations at stations across London tomorrow, and look out for several bands playing in Central London locations including Canary Wharf and Leadenhall Market.

London will mark Remembrance Day with special services and events on and around 13 November 2011.
