This has been a difficult year for everyone. In a year when we should have come together to remember the anniversaries of VE Day, The Battle of Britain and VJ Day it was important to make the ‘poppy’ available to people. Sadly 2020 has also seen the Royal British Legion’s Welfare Department receive more requests for support from veterans self-isolating or suffering hardship so fund raising was never more important.

I am grateful to everyone who felt able to support the Poppy Appeal this year; to Tesco (Helsby) for allowing us to have our regular stand; to the schools and businesses who displayed our boxes but most importantly to the volunteers who gave up their time so willingly to collect, not to forget those volunteers who were self-isolating for their encouragement and good wishes. The final village total for the 2020 Poppy Appeal was £9,000.76.

Thank You to you all!
