Volunteers are needed to help with this year’s Poppy Appeal in March.

Royal British Legion poppy appeal organisers Kay and Alec Larham have sent a huge thankyou to people in town for raising more than £23,000 in last year’s appeal.

They now hope to match or even top that figure this year and are calling on helpers to sell poppies around town in the run up to remembrance day.

If you can spare a couple of hours and would like to help please contact the Poppy Appeal organiser on 01354 656034 or 07908 009378.

There is a poppy dance at the Braza Club on Friday October 17 to raise funds. Tickets are on sale at March Braza, March Royal British Legion Club and The Toy Box.
