The Poppy Appeal in Mayfield and Hadlow Down
Poppy Appeal 2020
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak there is no local poppy appeal collection taking place this year. Donations can be made directly through the main RBL website, poppies can be purchased through the RBL poppy shop, or poppies can be still be found at participating large supermarkets.
Poppy Appeal 2019
The sum collected by the Mayfield, Five Ashes and Hadlow Down Branch for 2019 is £3,329, which is given directly to the Poppy Appeal. This is an excellent result and thank you all for your most generous support. The Branch figure comprises house to house and static point collections plus specific donations, such as from the Mayfield Festival Choir.
Thank you to Gavin Ross, our Poppy Appeal Organiser, for his sterling work in organising the house-to-house rounds and the appeal boxes in the shops, schools, etc. and also Mark Thomson and the Mayfield Scouts for their excellent work at the street collection on Armistice day.
It was most gratifying to see such a high attendance at the War Memorial on Remembrance Sunday, and at the ecumenical service that followed immediately in St. Dunstan’s Church. The attendances on this day seem to have increased year-on-year since the commencement of the centenary period for World War I.
We would like to say well done to everybody who was involved, and a big Thank You to all the people of Mayfield, Five Ashes and Hadlow Down who have been so generous yet again.
Anyone interested in helping in the next Poppy Appeal should contact our Poppy Appeal Coordinator, Gavin Ross.
