On behalf of the Marlborough Branch of The Royal British Legion, may I take this opportunity to thank everyone who were so generous in their donations to our annual Poppy Appeal.
I would like to thank all the volunteers including soldiers from 4Mi who kindly gave of their time to help with the collection and to the shops, businesses, schools and organisations who agreed to have collecting boxes in their premises.
A special thanks must go to Waitrose and Tesco for allowing us to set up collecting tables in their stores and making us so welcome.
I am delighted to announce that in total we achieved a best ever collection of just over £16,000. A figure which is testament to the fantastic generosity of the residents of Marlborough and the surrounding area.
Thank you again.
Royal British Legion
