I would like to thank all the good people of Sidmouth who collected, counted or contributed to the Poppy Appeal – you all know who you are!
A special mention should go to Sidmouth and Sid Valley Rotary Clubs who took over a complete Saturday collecting for me; mention should also be made of the Army Cadets and the Air Training Corps who gave up their time to help on the first and last Saturdays, providing a very valuable uniformed presence, as well as raising a considerable amount of money.
I can’t thank you all enough – it looks very much as though this will have been a record year. There are still a few more donations yet to come in before I have a final figure.
Poppy Appeal Organiser, Sidmouth
