Poppy Appeal in Burnham-On-Sea issues plea for helpers
urgent appeal has been issued this week for volunteers to come forward
to help Burnham-On-Sea's annual Poppy Appeal.
Royal British Legion has made a plea for more Poppy Appeal collectors
to help across Burnham and Highbridge during the annual collection,
which runs from Saturday 29th October to 12th November.
Ruth Crosby, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The
Poppy Appeal Collectors are the face of the Legion during the Poppy
Appeal - but this year we are really struggling to find enough local
collectors help provide as many opportunities as possible for people
to wear a poppy to show their support for our Armed Forces, while
raising important funds."
year we raised almost £30,000 in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge
and we hope to raise a similar amount this year - but only if we
can get the support of more collectors."
added: "If you can give a couple of hours to just turn up and
collect at one of the local supermarkets in Burnham or Highbridge
then please give me a call on 01278 238723. We'd love to hear from
