Poppy Appeal

2nd of November 2006

November, and once again it is Poppy Appeal time and to remember the debt we owe to the ex-Service community through the work of the Royal British Legion. In a typical year the Legion  provides:
      � Accommodation for over 400 people in the seven care homes around the country;
      � Breaks for over 4,000 people in one of our three welfare break centres;
      � Employment for ex-Service people many of whom are disabled;
      � Individual grants for those in need;
      � Home and hospital visits for the sick and house-bound
                    – and much more.
This support is expensive costing over �50 million every year and can only be maintained by your generous support when the Poppy Appeal collectors knock on your door.
On Remembrance Sunday, 12 November, there will be, as usual, a short service at the War Memorial on the Common at 11.55am followed by a service in St Paul’s.
P.E. Gardiner Secretary Royal British Legion
