The Poppy Appeal in Lydney


Poppy Appeal update 

The  hard work by the Poppy Appeal fund raising committee  and with the generosity of the local community the Lydney Branch Poppy Appeal for 2018 has so far reached over £23k which has exceeded all previous years totals.

So well done everybody for supporting the Poppy Appeal.

Anyone interested in helping in the next Poppy Appeal should contact our Poppy Appeal Co-ordinator via email s.j.rudgepoppy@btinternet.com

Welfare Support

This has been another busy year for the Branch Welfare Support Member who has responded to thirty-six requests since February 2018 from veterans or their families for welfare support.  This involves a great deal of time, commitment and collaboration between several support agencies to ensure that individuals receive the assistance they need.  We cover not only Lydney but the wider area of the Forest of Dean. Due to the sensitive nature of these cases we are not able to provide any further information.
