The Poppy Appeal 2016 has now concluded. Thanks to all the volunteer collectors including the Air Training Cadets. Thanks also go to Sainsburys for allowing us to collect in store likewise Co-op and Aldi. And of course thanks to all who we know have given so generously. The total amount collected was £17,435.
The Poppy Appeal started to help those returning from the First World War. A century on from the start of that conflict, the Royal British Legion is still helping today's Armed Forces families in much the same way, whether coping with bereavement, living with disability, or finding employment. The poppy is a powerful symbol - it is worn to commemorate the sacrifices of our Armed Forces and to show support to those still serving today and their loved ones.

Today at #ricon15, Bill Gates congratulated Rotary on the 30th anniversary of the PolioPlus program. Thanks to Rotary members’ vision in 1985 of a polio-free world, we’ve made incredible progress and are closer than ever to ending polio.
