Help those who suffered in conflict

MADAM - Remembrancetide commences tomorrow, October 24, and continues through to November 11. This short period of time represents the peak period of fundraising efforts for the Poppy Appeal, but the welfare work of the Royal British Legion continues throughout the year. Last year a total of �7,633 was raised in Sidbury, Sidford and Newton Poppleford and the RBL are very grateful to all of you who contributed or assisted in any way
We all see, regularly, on the news bulletins the pictures of soldiers returning from Afghanistan and the response of the people of Wootton Basset to the return of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Whether or not we agree with the involvement of our brave men and women in this conflict, they need our support, as do their families. We must also not forget those who have served in earlier conflicts and who are still bearing the scars of war, be they mental or physical, and their families who support and care for them.
May I please ask you to give as generously to the appeal as you possibly can, either by donating to the house to house collectors who come knocking at your door, or at one of the business premises where a Poppy Box is on display.
