Volunteers, supporters, and anyone else involved in Worksop’s Poppy Appeal in 2021 are invited to the Royal British Legion thank you event on Saturday, June 25.

Worksop branch secretary and Poppy Appeal organiser Grant Cullen said the event, which is being hosted by Bassetlaw District Council, is for the team to show their appreciation to all in Worksop and the surrounding district who helped in the ‘successful’ appeal.

The appeal, which runs annually in November, raised more than £40,000 for the Legion, which goes towards supporting serving and ex-serving men and women and their families.

Efforts in the appeal included those from local businesses, churches, schools, supermarkets, police and more.

Last year saw the Legion celebrate 100 years of helping military personnel.

Doors will open at Worksop Town Hall at 9.30am for a 10am start.
