RBL Downham Market’s Poppy Appeal has so far has raised to date in excess of £23.000 .
Donations and fund-raising goes on throughout the year but the recent concentrated Remembrance drive has again proved how generous Downham and the local District is when donating to a very worthwhile cause. It is not often realised that the RBL needs £10,000 a day to give care and some quality of life to those injured and to support their families.
Thank you very, very much from the Poppy Appeal organisers, to the the collectors , shops, businesses and pubs , to the team of volunteer ‘counters’ at Hilgay and, of course, everyone who donated.
Unfortunately, in this sad world some collection boxes were stolen and we hope those responsible feel guilty.
