Corporate Support would like to extend sincere thanks to all who supported last year’s fundraising in aid of the Poppy Appeal Fund and to those who attended the Remembrance Service on 8 November 2015.
Special thanks are extended to Mike Durnford for his continued voluntary support to the Poppy Appeal and to his team of volunteers, consisting of Girl Guides and Brownies, Ex Servicemen Barry Stroud and Marco Yon, Salvationist Phyllis Yon and Councillors – who all assisted in raising public awareness and promoting Remembrance Sunday; and, to HMS Lancaster, Sure South Atlantic Ltd, and the RMS St Helena who contributed generously to the Poppy Appeal Fund.
A big ‘thank you’ also to those who laid wreaths at the Cenotaph and to those who assisted with the arrangements including Gilbert Young and team, Connect Saint Helena Ltd, Johnny Dillon, Anthony Leo, Saint FM, Printech, and to all the local shops and pubs who helped with the Poppy Appeal.
The sum of £2,272.61 was raised this year and will be sent on behalf of St Helena Island to The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal in the UK.
We look forward to your continued support to the Poppy Appeal Fund in 2016.
