Have your say

The Polegate Branch of the Royal British Legion is grateful to all who donated to their 2012/13 Poppy Appeal and to the retailers who allowed us to place collection vessels in their premises.

Thanks also to the volunteer street collectors who played such a vital part in achieving the amount we raised, which was £10,699.65, a significant final figure for a town of its size.

We now start the 2013/14 Poppy Appeal, the street collection period being from November 2-9. As always we need the help of volunteer collectors, if you have any spare time, as little as two hours can be a great help, and are willing to assist us in the Appeal during the above period please contact us on 486021.

Raising funds is not an easy task and we fully appreciate the current financial constraints that many are facing but we ask that given the purpose of the collection you give as generously as you can afford.

JOE O’RIORDAN,

Poppy Appeal organiser .
