The Poppy Appeal in Berkhamsted and Tring
New Poppy Appeal Organiser appointed to Berkhamsted Poppy Appeal
The Berkhamsted, Tring & District Branch is pleased to announce that the Berkhamsted Poppy Appeal has a new Poppy Appeal organiser, Keith Hicks.
The Poppy Appeal is one of the Nation’s most recognised and supported charity appeals. Every year the Royal British Legion sends out millions of poppies which are distributed to schools, shops and businesses. In November you will see some of the charity’s voluntary collectors in your local town centre or supermarket with their tray of poppies. Although November may still seem a long way away the Poppy Appeal organisers are asking for your help – can you join the local Berkhamsted team?
People in Berkhamsted are always so supportive and do dig deep for us. During our collections we have a great sense of reward as people always have a soft spot for the Poppy appeal and our cause. The new Poppy Appeal organiser will order the poppies, organize volunteers and help collect the tins and wreaths for the town and ensure we have the poppies in the villages in time for this year’s Poppy Appeal.
If you are interested in joining the Poppy Appeal team in Berkhamsted, please call the Appeal’s Community Fundraiser Kate Mackay on 07920 861161 or email email@example.com
The Poppy Appeal is the largest single fundraising event in the Legion’s calendar. Over 40 million poppies will be made and disturbed for this year’s Poppy Appeal across the UK and overseas by 350,000 dedicated collectors. The Legion provides wide ranging and practical support to Armed Forces veterans as young as 19 and Armed Forces families in need, including crises grants, family breaks, benefits and money advise and at time sadly, inquest advice. Every poppy helps raise the £1.6 million needed by the Legion each week to deliver practical help and advice to Armed Forces community.
