The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal 2014

The poppy Appeal is the major single source of revenue for the Royal British Legion’s Benevolent Fund. Each year more people come to the Legion for help and the cost of that help is continually increasing. Daily we see and read of young Service men and women employed in peace keeping duties in many parts of the world often in considerable danger. This means that there will always be a need to provide help for them and their dependants if they can no longer do so. This year is the 100th anniversary of the start of World War 1 in 1914 and the 2014 Poppy Appeal ran from 25th October to 8th November.

In Norton volunteers made house‐to‐house visits and donations were collected at Norton Primary School, the Petrol Station, Andy’s Garage, The Norton Dog, and St Andrew’s Church Remembrance Service. The Parish Council donated the wreath at the War Memorial. This resulted in the sum of £1227.44p being raised in Norton. The Royal British Legion thanks very much all those who donated so generously for helping with their Appeal. Without this help the Legion would be unable to continue their vital welfare and benevolent work.
