The Poppy Appeal in Alsager
POPPY APPEAL 2019-20
Firstly, let me say, on behalf of all the Royal British Legion Alsager Branch members, a heartfelt thank you for all your wonderful support for the 2019 Poppy Appeal which raised the incredible sum of £19,336.
This amount will go towards helping ex-service personnel resettle into civilian life or aid those who have fallen on hard times after serving our country. Most ex-service personnel have no problems, but far too many suffer with physical and/or mental health problems due to service, or struggle to adapt to civilian life.
2020 has been an unprecedented and tough year for all. Covid-19 will have huge effect on monies raised not just the by the Royal British Legion but for all charities.
Any local group or individual willing to give a little time to help with this kind of collection in their own area in future would be welcomed with open arms by the Poppy Appeal Organiser, Stewart Waring (contact 01270 873444).
