MAY I thank everyone involved in last month's British Red Cross Flag Week.

Uttlesford raised in excess of £16,000, which was a magnificent total, due to the enthusiastic hard work of an army of organisers and collectors as well as the generosity of the public.

In Saffron Walden our house-to-house team raised £1,026, and a street collection added a further £604. In Great Dunmow the house-to-house collection amounted to £2,145. There is never a lack of demand for the wide range of services provided unobtrusively by the Red Cross, so it is enormously encouraging to know that our work receives such great support. Congratulations to all who contributed.

John Holford

Flag Week Organiser for Uttlesford
