THIS year's Poppy Appeal has commenced and I am writing to bring the appeal to the notice of residents and to ask them to support this worthwhile cause.

For 80 years the Royal British Legion's mission has been to help members of the serving and ex-service community while safe-guarding the welfare, interests and memory of those who have served their county.

Of 10.5 million ex-service personnel, there are up to 630,000 in need of support.

The Poppy Appeal will be used to fund Poppy Support, the Legion's welfare programme.

Each year demands on the funds increase and I hope that your readers will remember the sacrifices that our service personnel have made on their behalf.
