LETTER: Thanks after record-breaking Poppy Appeal

May I be permitted to acknowledge the grateful thanks of the Burnley and Padiham branch of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal to all who contributed to making the 2011 Poppy Appeal so successful.

Those whose help we wish to acknowledge are: Petty Estate Agency, Barclays Bank, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, LIDL, Co-op, Burnley Council, Padiham Council, Marks & Spencer, Army & Air Cadet Force, Molly Rigby’s, Padiham, together with all our volunteers and helpers and of course the Burnley and Padiham public without whose generosity we would not have raised another record breaking £36,392.22.

Every penny raised from the appeal goes towards helping serving and non-serving soldiers and their families, especially those who are wounded and/or injured as a consequence of serving in the Armed Forces.
