Poppies, poppy pins and wooden crosses are available in Balsham at the Post Office, The Old Butcher’s Coffee Shop, The Bell, The Black Bull and in West Wratting at the Chestnut Tree from Friday 23rd October after the official launch of the Appeal on Thursday 22nd. Donations can be made directly into the collecting tins at each location until Remembrance Day, for many of us in memory of our relatives as well as all those who gave their lives to ensure our freedom which we enjoy today. The RBL supports ex-service men and women who have served in all the conflicts around the world.
As there cannot be any house-to-house collection, please consider making your usual donations via https://bit.ly/34frnyx
Gift aid can also be arranged on this page too.
There is a box of paper poppies in the church porch, so villagers can still collect a poppy if they are able to donate via the JustGiving site and won’t be visiting any of the static points. We cannot collect any donations at St Mary’s, so please don’t leave any donations there.
Please note, JustGiving do not make a charge for donating. Donating is free, however, JustGiving ask for a suggested donation to enable them to keep donating free for everyone. Please note this is entirely voluntary and you can override this, just delete this sum and replace with £0, or any other sum if this is what you choose to do. Several people have let me know this is not very clear when you are trying to donate.
Thank you everyone.
