Sunderland AFC fans are being encouraged to honour the armed forces this month by snapping up a special edition poppy pin.

The Royal British Legion have teamed up with the club to produce a unique poppy pin, which includes the Black Cats' badge.

The pin is available for £2.99, with all profits from their sale going to the Royal British Legion, and their work providing care and support to members of the British Armed Forces - past and present - and their families.

To buy a pin, go to the Royal British Legion’s online shop, The Poppy Shop, at www.poppyshop.org.uk.
