Hornchurch Royal British Legion holds coffee morning to say thanks for �50,000 of Poppy Appeal donations
The Hornchurch Royal British Legion held a coffee morning to say “thank-you” to the people who helped raise �50,000 for this year’s Poppy Appeal.
Terry Minshaw and Wendy Neal, who organised the event on Wednesday, December 12, said they also wanted to thank the team of volunteers who took part in distributing poppies, wreaths and money tins, and collecting donations.
“Without them, the Poppy Appeal would not happen,” said Mrs Minshaw.
“We would also like to thank the previous poppy organiser of 18 years, David King, for the collecting system he left in place and for all his support.”
In total, the Hornchurch appeal raised �49,319.54.
