Fury after Lottery fund snubs British Legion

4 posts in this topic

War veterans condemned the Heritage Lottery Fund yesterday for funding pacifists while refusing to support a school poppy project.

The Peace Pledge Union, which distributes controversial white poppies, was awarded a £95,800 grant for a project to honour conscientious objectors.

It follows the lottery fund's refusal to fund a £92,200 Royal British Legion scheme to help children seed millions of poppies.

They have a long history of funding controversial causes. (Fortunately, not with my money!)

Would you bet a quid on a horse at 14 million to one?
