LETTER: Poppy Appeal thank-you

I would like, through your newspaper, to thank the amazing generosity of those people who contributed with both their money and/or time towards the BRL Poppy Appeal at Chatteris.

I would also like to thank Aldi which allowed us a stall within their store, and this in itself formed over half our fundraising.

The final total raised, purely on poppy sales and the Aldi stall, amounted to £13,207.14, almost double the 2015 total.

I will shortly be receiving a selection of various enamel pins and if anyone would like one (£2 each). they can telephone me on 01354 695257 or 07774 121 545. Volunteers for next year can also contact me via those numbers.

My thanks to every one who contributed in some way: I am very proud of my army of collectors and volunteers and their enthusiasm for the Appeal. Thank you all .
