Every single penny donated will go straight to The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal as we buy all the wool, buttons and pins ourselves helped by the generous donations of some wool and pins from Ashridge Farm in Wokingham. Thanks Cindy.
Last year we raised over £4,800 ...
|Happy Proud Hookers with Dave 'The Poppy'|
...and were thrilled to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement which was presented by the Mayor of Wokingham!
So I admit we are feeling the pressure this year to beat that total. Fingers crossed...
One lovely lady and her mum have made over 70 of these sparkly beauties which are selling like hot cakes at £5 each.
As we now have a dedicated charity bank account we can also take BACS payments and send out poppies in the post. Do feel free to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like one (subject to availablity of course).
If you live locally, have a wander round Wokingham Town centre on Remembrance Sunday. ...There might just be a little bit of evidence that we've been there...
When I finally totted up all the monies collected from the various shops as well as the on-line payments and those collected by individual ladies, I was flabbergasted to discover that we had topped last year's amazing total with a gobsmacking
As you can imagine we are all absolutely delighted with this staggering amount and were proud as punch to present the cheque to Dave from the Wokingham Poppy Appeal in front of a local reporter.
We had better get started again if we want to beat that total next year....no pressure!
