The Poppy Appeal in Bishop's Stortford
POPPY APPEAL 2017
I would like to convey my heartfelt thanks to all who were involved in the 2017 Poppy Appeal. They are too numerous to list and I would not want to risk leaving anyone out.
However, I would like to single out three groups for special thanks - our Veterans who did such sterling work at the Launch, our Cadets who not only turned out for the Launch but provided cover for the merchandise stall in Jackson Square Sainsbury’s on the three Saturdays and finally the General Public who yet again turned up trumps – their generosity never ceases to amaze. The total this year currently stands at a magnificent £44,267.25.
Next year sees the 100th Anniversary of the end of the Great War and we really need to recruit some more volunteers to appropriately mark this very special event, so if you have a couple of hours to spare, be it knitting poppies, sitting at our Supermarket Poppy table or individually collecting at the Supermarkets, please contact me. Any suggestions of new ways to raise money for The Royal British Legion would also be appreciated.
