Poppy Appeal



A BIG thank you to the public and local businesses of Cockenzie & Port Seton, who have kindly donated the sum of £1995.01 for our 2010 Poppy Appeal. Last years (2009) collections were £3256.74 which again was an amazing amount raised, as this lead us to win the Royal British Legion, Scottish  National Trophy, for the most funds raised outwith the Poppy Appeal. 2011 will bring new challenges, which we are eager to meet.

Each year more people come to the Legion for help and the cost of that help is increasing. Daily we hear of young servicemen and women employed in peace keeping duties, often in considerable danger, and this means that there will always be a need to provide help for them and their dependants, when they themselves no longer can. That is why the poppy appeal is so important.

Thank you, on behalf of those who will now benefit from your support.

Our thanks also to the volunteers who have helped us by giving  their free time with this years appeal.
