On the morning of Thursday 21st November a small group of helpers gathered at my house to count the 50 plus collecting boxes that are distributed during Remembrance Week for the Poppy Appeal.  As the Poppy Appeal Organiser I am not allowed to do the counting so my job was to supply teas and coffees to the helpers and write up all the results.  I am now in a position to tell you that this year’s total was £4,102. 81 which includes the £271.44 raised at the Coffee Morning.  A very pleasing result as this is £235.00 more than last year and I am expecting just a little bit more to come in.  A big thank you to everybody who made this possible.  The number of active people in our branch is very small and would welcome any new members.

I am writing this on the Wednesday of remembrance week, all the Poppy Appeal collecting tins have now been distributed.  I am now getting the house in order for the Coffee Morning on Friday.  Next week I will be collecting all the boxes and we will then count the money either the end of that week or early the following week.  Obviously I have no idea of what has been collected so far but I should be in a position to let you know this in the next Chimes.  I would like to thank all the people who have helped with the collections in all the villages.

A group of some of the people who attended the coffee morning on Friday 8th November.  The total raised was £221.44, many thanks to all those who came or made donations.

The next meeting will be on Tuesday 10th December at 7.30pm.
