Chesterfield poppy community so generous

On behalf of the Chesterfield Branch of the Royal British Legion, I would like to thank the Chesterfield community for their generosity with last year’s Poppy Appeal, which has surpassed all expectations.

The current total is £36,546 which was raised from collection tins placed in local locations such as schools and local businesses, as well as street collections.

I would also like to thank the many volunteers who assist us by delivering the tins to the various sites around the Chesterfield area, the poppy collectors who sell poppies in the street and the volunteers who help count the donations.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the Poppy Appeal. If you would like to assist, please contact the Poppy Appeal Organiser, on Chesterfield 232591 or call into the Royal British Legion at Glumangate.
