Corporate Support would like to extend sincere thanks to all persons involved with the Remembrance Day Service on Sunday 10 November 2013.
Special thanks go to members of the public on Island and on the RMS St Helena who made generous contributions to the Poppy Appeal Fund, and to all the local outlets who continue each year to support the Poppy Appeal by selling poppies on Corporate Support’s behalf.
The sum of £1097.76 was raised this year and will be sent on behalf of St Helena to The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal in the UK.
Connie Johnson, organiser of the Poppy Appeal Fund and the Remembrance Day Service commented:
“This could not have been accomplished without the help of staff members Alton Isaac and Stephanie Crook who were involved with the preparation and distribution of the poppies and money boxes. This year’s funds raised were considerably higher than in previous years and it was all down to those who kindly donated to this worthy cause.”
The Royal British Legion has always been grateful and has previously congratulated St Helena for the amount of funds raised.
