Sidmouth Poppy Appeal nets �7k and counting!

SIDMOUTH’S Poppy Appeal has proved a smash-hit success and has this week raised more than �7,000.

Sue Pink (pictured with husband Chris), the town’s appeal co-ordinator, said: “It’s been going great. I can’t thank all my wonderful collectors and counters in Sidmouth enough. They have done me proud. We’re having a very good appeal this year.”

She said a ‘half-time total’ of �7,209 had been counted on Tuesday.

Sidmouth will mark Remembrance Day with Royal British Legion events today and over the weekend.
