A dedicated couple who have given a total of 100 years of service to the Poppy Appeal have been presented with certificates.

For the last 50 years, John and Shirley Stanton, pictured above front left and centre with Poppy Appeal organiser Peter Mouncer, front right, have volunteered to carry collection trays in the run-up to Remembrance Sunday.

Mr Stanton, who had served in the RAF for 40 years, and his wife would collect for the appeal at home and abroad.

The couple were presented with their certificates during a meeting of the Downham Royal British Legion branch.

The branch is also looking for new volunteers to help with the collections for the appeal later this year.

If you would like to support contact Mr Mouncer on 01366 384726 for more information.
