A big thank you from the British Legion

MAY I through your paper say a big thank you to the businesses, visitors and the residents of Hastings and St Leonards for the magnificent support they showed to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal which has enabled us to raise £49,000 to date.

I would also like to thank all the collectors and pre-service units for all their support, without whom we would not be able to raise this amount.

Lastly I would like to thank the Observer for the coverage you gave us over the remembrance tide period.
