Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be one of the famous voices heard over the transport network on London Poppy Day.

The Gunners boss and a host of other famous voices will encourage commuters to donate to The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal on 29 October. Other celebrities include Chelsea captain John Terry, Spurs striker Harry Kane, Brian Blessed, Danny Dyer, Jo Brand, Trevor Nelson and Ian Lavender.

Wenger, whose side were beaten 3-0 by Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup fourth round on Wednesday night, will be heard across Arsenal, Finsbury Park, Highbury & Islington, Holloway Road, Caledonian Road and Tottenham Hale.

In what has now become an annual tradition, two Circle line Tube trains will be wrapped in the poppy livery, as well as nine London buses. All London Underground, London Overground and DLR trains will also have poppies on the front and back of every train.

King’s Cross, Canary Wharf, Tottenham Court Road, Liverpool Street, Westminster and Waterloo Tube stations will also be dressed in the poppy design in support of the appeal. Poplar station on the DLR will also be partially branded in the famous poppies.

London Poppy Day is part of the national Poppy Appeal that aims to raise as much money as possible in a single day to support the whole Armed Forces community.
