Thank you, the people of Canterbury, for your tremendous support for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal this year. The appeal itself runs from October through to September and last year your donations for the complete period reached an impressive £58,000. Imagine how we felt this year when, after the two-week Remembrance-tide collecting period, the total for Canterbury reached more than £54,000! Your kindness and generosity to our serving men and women, their dependents and former serving personnel and their families is overwhelming. All of us at the Canterbury branch of the legion thank you so much. Your donations enable us to continue to provide welfare support, advice with jobs, physical and mental health care, help in finding homes and much, much more — thank you.
