As Poppy Appeal Organiser for Leamington and district I am proud to say that the 2013 appeal in this area raised a total of £48,041.00 for the whole of last year.
The two week campaign for the 2014 Poppy Appeal is now over and I am pleased to announce that as at the date of publication of this letter Leamington and district have already raised a total of £51,076 and this has been boosted up by a further £6,000.00 by Bodies & Co fashion show who chose the Poppy Appeal as one of their charities this year.
I would like to thank the Royal Priors for obtaining a shop again and also their support throughout this year, Wanzl for supplying shop fittings, volunteers and the Army Cadets and Sea Cadets for their all round support and finally to Bodies & Co for choosing the Poppy Appeal as their charity.
Finally my thanks go to the general public for their continuing support and generosity not only during the two week campaign but also throughout the year.
Pat Edgington, Royal British Legion, Leamington Branch
