Understanding the importance of remembering those who served, sacrificed and changed our world, this year we hosted a raffle to mark a century since the end of WW1.
The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s largest fundraising campaign, held each year in November, deemed the ‘period of remembrance’. This year (2018) being a notable one, as it marked 100 years since the end of WW1.
The Royal British Legion provides vital support for the Armed Services Community, from supporting veterans in emergency situations or those who may have fallen in debt, to providing well-deserved breaks for service families.
This year our Executive PA decided to mark the momentous occasion, we would do more than providing a collection box; instead opting for organising a raffle on top, with all proceeds going to the Poppy Appeal.
“A few employees kindly donated prizes, and tickets were sold to the workforces of both Camloc Motion Control Ltd and National Windscreens (who share our building)” Di stated.
“I am very pleased to let you know we have received official notification that we raised the magnificent sum of £151.06 for the 2018 Poppy Appeal. A wonderful effort – thanks once again to everyone who participated and donated.” Di went on to say.
