As well as raising cash for the annual Poppy Appeal, the group raised an extra �800, which will be shared between the Royal British Legion Children’s Fund and the Royal British Legion National Benevolent Fund.

Group chairman Margaret West said: “We are delighted with our fundraising efforts this year, thanks to a very hard-working committee and continuous support shown by members, friends, family and residents.”

The branch is always keen to recruit new members. It meets every second Wednesday evening of the month and has regular speakers. For more information, contact Margaret West on (01395) 277503.
