Royal British Legion – Thank You
The Burnham Branch of the Royal British Legion would like to thank the local community in Burnham and the surrounding villages for their generous support to the 2021 Poppy Appeal. The total has exceeded £15,300 which is really good bearing in mind all the Covid restrictions.
At a recent branch meeting, Jim Cousins, the local Poppy Appeal Organiser expressed his gratitude to all those who helped raise this magnificent total. These funds are greatly needed to support of our armed forces and veterans and their families in providing rehabilitation and welfare services.
2022 is the 100th Anniversary of the formation of the Burnham and District Branch of the Royal British Legion. A Service to commemorate this event will take place in the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin on Sunday 6th February 2022 at 4 pm. The local committee are hoping to organise other events which will be advertised in due course.
