Poppy Appeal 2004

2nd of December 2004

For the first time we have exceeded £3000 – £3105 to be precise, with some Gift Aid still to be reclaimed by the Legion! This is a wonderful result – an increase of over 10 percent. We were lucky in having dry and mostly mild weather in early November and the Iraq conflict may have heightened awareness in many people to the needs of the wounded and the support the Legion gives to them, their families and the families of those who have died.
Warmest thanks to everyone involved for selfless, cheerful efforts. Some house-to-house rounds are more rewarding than others (I send a grumbling husband down Langley Road, on one of the most dangerous and least lucrative) but three collectors exceeded £100. ‘Surely it’s your wallet you’re looking for?’, murmured to someone groping in his pocket, seems to work wonders; that collector’s tin didn’t rattle at all. The church collection was up by a third, to almost £300, and of the static points, warmest thanks again to Andrew Miles and his staff at Wyevale with £161 and to Brits News and St Paul’s School for more than £100 each.
