Outstanding achievement for poppy appeal

On behalf of the Royal British Legion in Belper may I thank everybody who contributed to make this year’s Poppy Appeal such a wonderful success.

Special thanks to the Women’s Section of the RBL, The Rotary Club of Belper and Duffield, The Women’s Institute, the mayor, council and staff, the Army Cadets, Derwent Brass Band, St Peter’s Church and everybody else who donated time and effort delivering and collecting merchandise, collecting tins and generally sorting things out.

Over the year events and donations have raised over £27,400 to date. 
This is over 18% up on the money collected in 2017 and, I’m sure you will agree, an outstanding achievement.

Be assured this money Belper and its townsfolk have raised will go towards the essential support work we carry out for our service men and women, veterans and their families.
