Sadly at the February Committee meeting of the branch, Vicky has tendered her resignation as Poppy Support Co-ordinator. Throughout her role as Poppy Support Co-ordinator, Vicky has worked tirelessly in many money raising ventures.
Though she is currently on holiday, the President, the Chairman of the Branch and all committee members thank her for her tremendous support to the cause and to the Branch. We hope to enlist a new Poppy Support Co-ordiator in the near future. Vicky will be a very very hard act to follow. We all wish you well Vicky.
