To highlight and celebrate this year’s Poppy Appeal campaign celebrating 100 years of collecting in the community, RBL commissioned Charlie Clift and our production team to travel across the country, from Plymouth to Sunderland – to meet and photograph 10 incredible people who collect for the Royal British Legion. From ten year old Maisie, in Plymouth, who has been fundraising since she was just four, to Vera, who is 82, and has been a committed collector in Durham for more than seven decades. In fact Vera has raised over £1million in her time! Charlie photographed each collector in their community, from seafronts to stores, supermarkets to stations, creating both still and moving portraits.
