The great poppy bash

The Royal British Legion is inviting people in Belper to join in a three-day celebration to help raise £1m for the Armed Forces.

As part of the Legion’s 90th birthday year, the organisation is hosting a Great Poppy Party weekend on June 10, 11 and 12.

The Legion, which has a base in Belper, wants to raise £90m for the forces in its 90th year.

If you want to host a party in aid of the Legion’s appeal then you can apply for a party pack, which includes invitation cards, napkins, a tablecloth, and a frisbee.

The pack can be bought at www.poppyshop.org.uk, or by ringing 0300 123 9110.
