Poppy Appeal Needs You
The Curry Rivel and Drayton branch of the Royal British Legion Association (later including Fivehead) is one of the oldest branches in the Legion.
Funds raised are used for the help and relief of ex-servicemen and their families and dependants, through the annual Poppy Appeal in November.
Here in Curry Rivel, as part of the overall Branch effort, usually over £2000 is raised and this comes largely from the House to House
collection. To achieve this there is a great team of enthusiastic volunteer collectors, but inevitably as time goes by some people have to give up, whether by reason of age, infirmity, relocation or, sadly, the grim reaper.

This year, and in order to prepare for the coming centenary of the end of the First World War in 2018, replacements are needed..... is there is anyone reading this who could help by giving up a little time in November?

Just get in touch on 251261 or by email at ealeckie@aol.com(Evelyn Leckie Honorary Poppy Organiser for Curry Rivel Drayton & Fivehead).
