Dunmow’s Poppy appeal breaks last year’s record with �12,000 donation
THE POPPY Appeal in Dunmow enjoyed a second consecutive record year with over �12,000 raised for soldiers injured in conflicts.
The town and district’s branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL), which organises the appeal every year, raised the staggering amount through house-to-house, street and static point collections.
The amount raised - well above last year’s total of �10,869 - will now goes towards helping soldiers and veterans, and their families, through financial, social and emotional support.
In a letter to the Broadcast, Poppy Appeal organiser Margaret Cole said: “Thank you to everyone who contributed so generously to the appeal.
“My thanks to Tesco and the Co-Operative who welcomed collectors into their store, to all the shops, schools, businesses, public houses and everybody who willingly had trays of poppies and collection boxes on display.
