Shaftesbury Thanked For Extra Effort In Supporting 2020 Poppy Appeal

All charity fundraising has been challenging this year, but Shaftesbury residents have worked hard to make sure that the Royal British Legion’s vital work does not suffer from a fall in income.

From Sam Askam’s 10k run to Peter Wells’ collection outside Tesco, many members of our community have helped to raise funds.

Yesterday, Royal British Legion chairman Robin Miller thanked Helen Garner of The Baguette Bar and David Taylor from Shaftesbury TIC. Robin received a cheque for £1,263 following Poppy Appeal collections made at both businesses.
