As we have previously reported
, our Members were out-and-about helping the Royal British Legion around Canterbury earlier in the month. Our Club has had a long relationship with the Royal British Legion, and this latest amount takes the total that we have helped to collect over the years to well over £40,000.
Gerald Ferrett, MBE, the local Poppy Appeal Organiser, wrote a letter to thank our Members for the "exceptional total" and reminded us of the constant need for funds.
Club President, Stephen Thompson, expressed his thanks to all of our Members that helped with the appeal for "a wonderful effort." He gave particular thanks to PP Alastair Scott who collected £1347.64. "He was out on most days in all weathers," said Stephen.
