Poppy Collectors Celebrate collecting

£47,247.02 so far in 2018/19

On Tuesday 5th February there was a gathering of all the available Poppy Collectors from the Aldershot Area. They were there for the annual Thank You, an evening when RBL members and Non RBL members are presented with certificates and more importantly they find out how well they did over the November Poppy Appeal. All collecting points did extremely well and together they raised the fantastic sum of £47,247.02.

This total also included sponsor money for Dexter's climb up Mount Snowdon and the money raised by 6 members of the 2nd Aldershot Scout Group who took part in the Great South Run. 

Caroline Mills (Poppy Appeal Organiser) said " It is important to thank our collectors, without them the Poppy Appeal just would not work. They are all ages, from all backgrounds and pull together to make a fantastic team".

Aldershot Royal British Legion would like to thank Rushmoor Borough Council, Wellington Centre, Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury, Co-op, Aldershot Town FC, Aldershot Conservative Club  and Aldershot Railway Station for allowing us to have manned collection points on the premises. We would like to also thank all the businesses and Pubs across aldershot who allowed us to place collecting tins on their counters.

Most of all we would like to thank the people of Aldershot for their generosity.
