Poppy Appeal and Remembrance Service

Posted on Tuesday, November 12th, 2019

Well folks here we are at the end of two weeks selling poppies. My grateful thanks go to all of the members of Active Support who did a “stint” at our stand in Sainsburys. Also my thanks go to Thelma Young, Kerry Budd, the 7th Cubs, the 26th Cubs, the 29th Cubs, the 11th Group and the 13th Group. You all did a great job. I have a running total of money collected until Friday evening, but I am going to keep you in suspense until I have the full total from British Legion. It will surprise you all !!!Thanks also to those members who joined me at the Cenotaph on Sunday morning and to the members of Network, Siobahn, Bailey and Henry who laid a wreath on behalf of the District. I think we all did a great job in showing Scouting supporting the community. Total amount collected for the Poppy Appeal will be circulated when I have it. Thank you all, George Longhurst.

Update:

Herewith the total collected for the Poppy Appeal, by the District on behalf of The British Legion. £7,869.25p (This includes money collected by the 13th Group at their church parade) My contact at British Legion tells me that this is a record amount collected on that site. Once again WELL DONE to everyone who took part.
