The Royal British Legion Coffee Morning on Saturday 15th October was a resounding success, raising £604.30p for the Buckland St Mary and District branch funds.
These monies rest, very temporarily, in the branch bank account, being
distributed at the Annual General Meeting of the branch, this year to be
held on Wednesday 23rd November at Buckland Village Hall. As a small
branch by the standards of many, we pride ourselves on raising money
throughout the year to distribute, usually between The Royal British
Legion Poppy Appeal and the two Somerset homes – Dunkirk House at
Bishops Lydeard, Taunton, and Somerset Legion House in Weston-Super-
Mare. Each of the homes offers respite care and long term care to exservice
personnel who have served their country in any branch of the
Today, more than for many years, the need for the Royal
British Legion to assist men and women is greater than
ever. It is therefore with gratitude that we, the branch
members, thank all those who came to the coffee morning
and helped us to raise this wonderful sum of money.
Thanks to all those who gave product for the stalls and
donated raffle prizes. An especial ‘Thank You’ to Marion
Board and Angela Smith who kept the coffee flowing.
Thank you to everyone who came to the Community Coffee Morning on 12th November.
Your kindness and generosity raised £170.24p for the 2011 Poppy Appeal.
