RBL Kyrenia Branch ….
The Poppy Appeal fortnight will soon be upon us and we have a few things in store for you..
The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every year in November, the period of Remembrance. Our main fundraising events during the Poppy Appeal are all about bringing communities together to fundraise and enjoy themselves in the process.
The first Poppy Appeal was held in 1921. The poppies sold out almost immediately and raised over £106,000; a considerable amount at the time.
Our Poppy Stall will be in Girne Town Centre on Thursday 24th and 31st October … between 11am and 3pm.
Come down for your Poppy and have a chat with our Volunteers who will be there to help you, we will be happy to see you.
