RBL branch celebrating record total
EASTCOTE’S branch of the Royal British Legion is celebrating the highest amount ever raised for the Poppy Appeal.
The fundraising bid so far totals £50,371 for the 2015-2016 year, which still has a way to go, ending September 30, 2016.
Jeff Duley, Eastcote branch chairman and Poppy Appeal organiser, wished to thank all members of the public in the Eastcote, Ruislip Manor, South Ruislip and Pinner areas who have continued to support the worthy cause.
He said: “Much of the money was raised during the 2015 November Poppy Fortnight with other money coming from personal donations, Stardust Big Band concerts, family quizzes, a black tie dinner, horse race night and local fetes.”
