Celebs To Take Over Tube Tannoys

Twenty one famous voices are going to be heard on the London Underground and on buses across London as part of this year's Poppy Day.

Transport for London are working with celebrities like Barbara Windsor, Brian Blessed, Joanna Lumley and Stephen Fry to encourage Londoner's to give generously in support of The Royal British Legion's London Poppy Day on 30 October 2014. 

They will be heard at over 70 London Underground stations, on all 8,500 London buses and 11 Network Rail main line stations.

Poppies will also be displayed on all Tube and Docklands Light Railway trains and two Tube trains, one on the Metropolitan line and one on the Circle line, a London Overground train and ten London buses will also be completely wrapped in the design.

London's Transport Commissioner, Sir Peter Hendy CBE, said: `It's a great honour for us to be supporting London Poppy Day again.

'This time of year is always poignant as the nation remembers those who made such profound sacrifices, and this year is particularly important as we mark the centenary of the start of the Great War.  

`People living and working in London will see our specially wrapped trains and buses displaying the poppy design, in honour of the 4,500 transport workers who gave their lives in both World Wars and other conflicts.

'This could not have been done without the support of our sponsors and celebrities and I would like to thank them for helping us mark London Poppy Day and raise awareness of a great cause.'
