Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal 2014

Please see the following news about the Poppy Appeal from Peter Mannering:

This year’s Poppy Appeal in Aldbourne raised £2600, a magnificent total and a record for the village.

I would like to thank all for their generous donations and particularly the hard-working and dedicated house-to house collectors, some of whom have been knocking on your doors every year since 1991.

This year the 18 collectors raised £1605 between them; St. Michael’s School, the shops, pubs, Community Junction and Nursing Home raised a further £800. In addition £390 was donated at the Remembrance Sunday Service at the War Memorial Hall, divided equally between the Poppy Appeal and the Royal Star and Garter homes for ex-servicemen (and women).

Thank you Aldbourne for your wonderful support this year, the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

Peter Mannering
