Poppy Appeal

Welcome to the Colston Bassett, Owthorpe and Cotgrave Branch of The Royal British Legion


It is that time again! The time when you give back for all the fun you have had being a member of CBOC. J

Last year we collected over £20,000 with £15,000 coming from members collecting in Morrisons, Sainsburys and The Coop. 58 Members and their families completed 138 slots each of 2 hours duration in the supermarkets which was an incredible effort.

This year we need to do just as well, if not better, as it is the Centenary of the ending of WW1. Maybe we could all try to do one more slot than last year. Indeed if you could fill a particular time slot or 2 each week, or dare I say each day, it would help with the planning.

Collecting this year starts in Sainsburys and the Coop on Saturday 20 October and finishes on Saturday 10 November. Morrisons collecting starts one week later on Saturday 27 October and finished on Saturday 10 November.

The sheets showing slots will be at the AGM for you to fill in or you can get in touch with the lucky member of the committee organising each location as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
