Honiton Poppy Appeal organisers hope to smash last year’s £20,000 total

The Poppy Appeal in the Honiton area raised more than £20,000 last year – and the local branch of the Royal British Legion is pulling out all the stops to smash that total.

The appeal was launched last week, with supporters determined to break through the £20,000 barrier once again.

Poppies are for sale at outlets around the town and from sellers.

Collection boxes went out on October 26.

A stand selling poppies is being manned at Tesco until November 9.

Poppy pins are also available in Honiton, priced £3 each. For further information, click here.

This year’s Remembrance Day Parade and Service will take place on Sunday, November 10 at 2.15pm.

Last year, the Poppy Appeal raised £51m nationally. This year marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

The Royal British Legion says: “This year the Poppy Appeal is aiming to raise over £50 million to help support serving and ex-serving members of the Armed Forces community and their families.”
