London Poppy Day 2018


Every year the Poppy Appeal is kicked off in London with an intensive one-day campaign focussed on collecting from daily commuters. Driven by the Royal British Legion, service personnel, veterans and volunteers are deployed to train and tube stations across London based on designated spots for each Regiment, Ship or Station. The campaign has been running for 12 years and has raised between £11,000 and £16,000 every year for the past five years, in a single day of collecting!

Dale Smith from Wilson James Security Division meets up each year with his former comrades from the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers at Bank Station and has done so for the past six years. If you see anyone out collecting, please donate anything you can afford for the great work of the Royal British Legion in supporting our service men and women, past and present, and their families in need.

Managing the fleet after lockdown

With lockdown being eased across the UK, a lot of sites across Wilson James will start to slowly ease back into some form of normality. With this in mind, Liam McMenamin, fleet coordinator at Wilson James addresses the areas that may be challenging over the coming months.


Multi-factor authentication (MFA)

As part of our journey on to Microsoft 365 and to better secure your data from external threats, we will be activating MFA across Microsoft 365 on Monday 6 July. This follows a successful MFA pilot programme which we have been running over the last 4 weeks.
