The current total for the Poppy Appeal has been announced by the Poppy Appeal Organiser for the local area.
Ian Campbell announced to members and supporters at their Christmas social that the amount raised so far was £42,825.31.
Ian said ''I am really pleased with this amount, to think we started this appeal not really knowing if we would be restricted due to Covid and we had some volunteers worried about getting back to physical collecting, but the community have come out and supported us and they were glad we were out and about!''
The area was increased by the addition of Fishponds as well as the usual Staple Hill, Mangotsfield, Downend and Frenchay areas.
The appeal locally is looking for more organisers and collectors that would like to help across the district. If you are interested or would like some more information, please contact Ina Campbell on 07950104450.
