Poppy Appeal Launch 2009

« Back

This year the Poppy Appeal Launch took place on Saturday 24th October.  Each year is keeps getting bigger and bigger and each year the record of money raised is broken and the bar set even higher.  In 2008-09 season the Royal British legion raised £560,000 which was £10k up on the previous record.  The target for this year is £620,000.  The Royal British Legion office in Lincolnshire is the second busiest in the Country.  This last year they dealt with 1,973 cases and gave out £950,491.  Over 60 Standards were present at this years appeal and we believe it also saw the biggest turn out yet with over 600 people turning out on a very wet gloomy day for the service.
