Keighley Poppy Appeal donations increase
6:06pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
Keighley’s Poppy Appeal has collected £33,400 in the past year.
Organisers said they were delighted with the amount and thanked everyone who gave their support.
“We bucked the trend by being one of the few towns in the country to increase donations rather than see them decreasing due to the recession,” said Jackie McGinnis, for Keighley Royal British Legion.
“As we enter the new year of the Poppy Appeal next month, we shall again be asking members of the public to give their support by helping distribute the boxes, with street and supermarket collections and in the shop.”
The branch would continue to meet at the New Variety Club in Keighley on the third Wednesday of every month.
A Christmas party is to be held on December 18 and tickets will go on sale soon. Contact 07882 458849 for further information.
