We are pleased to report that in its 90th anniversary year the Poppy Appeal has raised the splendid sums of £13,250 in Matlock, Matlock Bath, Bonsall and Tansley, and a further £4,130 in Darley Dale and Rowsley.
This generosity of members of the public no doubt reflects their concern at the increasing need for the Legion to support the casualties and dependants of contemporary conflicts while continuing to address the needs of surviving ex-service personnel of previous wars.
These results have been achieved with the help of our many volunteer collectors and distributors, together with the army and ATC cadets, motorcycle riders and the many schools, shops and business organisations who support the British Legion.
Thank you all.
Steve Lennox, Matlock
