Branch shocKed

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Tesco Smash -

Ash­ford Royal Bri­tish Le­gion branch chair­man Popi­raj Rai last week said: “We are re­ally shocked and sad­dened by what he has done in the name of our char­ity.

“This af­fects the trust of the pub­lic that we have lost, which is sad be­cause lots of vol­un­teers work re­ally hard and give up so much time to help oth­ers.

“Then it is also hard for those who are veter­ans and their fam­i­lies suf­fer­ing from in­juries and their wounds, who have been af­fected by his crime.”

He said that while the crime took place be­fore he and the new com­mit­tee mem­bers were in post, they have re­viewed the pro­ce­dures to make sure there is no re­peat of the in­ci­dent.
