Appeal for Poppy volunteers in Sale and Altrincham
2:20pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
THIS year in Sale and Altrincham the Poppy Appeal is calling on people to come forward to offer just two hours of their time to help make the appeal the biggest and best yet.
It is a period of intense activity for volunteers and the appeal needs 25 more in both Sale and Altrincham to sit at manned poppy stands in the supermarkets for two hours.
Volunteers do not need to have a military background, just a desire to support our armed forces and their families now and for the rest of their lives.
Every poppy helps The Royal British Legion to support the armed forces past and present £1.6 million is spent each week on delivering direct practical care and support to the armed forces community.
More than 40 million poppies will be made and distributed across the county and overseas by more than 350,000 collectors, aiming to raise £37million.
Anyone who can volunteer in Sale should contact Julie Dove at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07768 238875.
Anyone who can help The Poppy Appeal in Altrincham, can either email Julie Dove or pop into a local meeting at Altrincham Methodist Church, on Barrington Road, on Saturday, October 5, between noon and 2pm.
