Royal British Legion

more Poppy Appeal collectors to come forward.
Royal British Legion has issued an appeal for volunteers to help
in Burnham and Highbridge during this autumn's annual collections.
says it is "extremely short" of helpers in the area
and is keen for residents to come forward and help.
Sue Meads told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Unless we can recruit
a group of volunteers the Poppy Appeal is unlikely to go ahead
in the Burnham, Highbridge, Berrow and Brean area this year, which
would be a huge shame."
Sue Potepa, Poppy Appeal County Fundraiser, added: "If
you have two hours or two weeks to help in Burnham-On-Sea or Highbridge,
we would ask invite you to get in touch."
Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legions principal way
of raising money during the year and we need volunteers of all
ages to do a variety of roles such as distributing poppies and
collecting on streets, in shops and in workplaces."
