Corporate Support staff would like to extend sincere thanks to everyone who supported this year’s fundraising in aid of the 2014 Poppy Appeal Fund and to all who attended the Remembrance Service on Sunday 9 November 2014.
Special thanks are extended to Mr Mike Durnford and his team of volunteers, consisting of Girl Guides, Scouts, Cubs, Salvationists, Fire Service personnel, and Councillors whose efforts helped to increase funds for the Poppy Appeal and allowed Remembrance Sunday to be properly and respectfully observed.
Grateful thanks are extended to everyone here on Island who made generous contributions to the Fund, including Pilling Primary School (pictured) who contributed funds collected on their Night to Remember Service. The RMS St Helena Charity, an anonymous donation, Sure South Atlantic Ltd and the RMS herself also gave generously.
Thanks also go to Connect St Helena Ltd, SAMS, Donny Stevens, Saint FM, Printech and all local retail outlets and bars who continue every year to support the Poppy Appeal.
A total sum of £2,435.50 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.
