editorial image

Staveley & district Royal British Legion would like to say a big thank you to all those local people who supported the 2016 Poppy Appeal.

You once again surpassed the total of previous years and locally we collected an amazing amount of over £19,000, this amount also included a bucket collection and a cheque for over £2,000 from Chesterfield Football Club. 
We would also like to say a big thank you to all those who came along to the remembrance service with around 500 people turning out. It’s only with your support the Royal British Legion is able to continue with its work with our armed forces.

The Staveley and district branch is a very small branch compared to others and the work and support in our local community can only continue with your support.

If you would like to join the group or find out more about how to help our servicemen and women please come along to our monthly branch meeting held on the first Thursday of each month starting 6.30pm.

Meetings are at the Legionnaires’ Club, 17a Lowgates, Staveley S43 3TT. Or email S&Drecruit@gmail.com to find out more about how you can get involved.
