A BIG ‘thank you’ has been given to the people of March who have raised £1,8248.77 so far for this year’s Poppy Appeal.
Appeal organisers Kay and Alec Larham issued the thank-you and explained why the annual fundraising drive is so important.
They said: “Each year more people come to the Legion for help and the cost of that help is increasing.
“Daily we hear of young servicemen and women employed in peace keeping duties, often in considerable danger, and this means that there will always be a need to provide help for them and their dependants, when they themselves no longer can. That is why the Poppy Appeal is so important.”
