The Poppy Appeal in Bideford
The Poppy Appeal is maintained with the help of volunteers from around the district going house to house and street collections:-
Mrs E Lomass at Abbottsham, Mrs Mary George with the ladies from the W.I. of Buckland Brewer, Mr D Heath at Woolsery, Ms E Badcock in Littleham. The help from all the different Cadets who stand outside Morrisons and Atlantic Village, where we have the use of the D.U.K.W. from Instow Royal Marines. The Army Cadets man with two of the staff from the Camp who also run the Cadets 'Burma Star Veterans', RASC/RCT and Devon & Dorset association's Mrs Pam Balfour of Garlands puts on a display of all the Wreaths in one of her windows every year in Allhalland Street.
But it's really down to all of you for helping with collections and donating, not only money, but your time and support.
With all this help The Poppy Appeal raised over £16,000 in 2007.
