May I, on behalf of The Royal British Legion, express our thanks to the good people of Bedlington and Sleekburn for their magnificent response to this years Poppy Appeal.
Thanks to the kindness and generosity of the local community, a total of £3,127.48 was raised to support the welfare and benevolent work which the Legion carries out to assist serving and former members of HM Forces and their dependants.
We are extremely grateful for this excellent response and would particularly wish to thank the management and staff of Tesco, the cadets of 2522 Squadron Air Training Corps and Mrs Beverley Crate for the special efforts which they made.
