I would like to thank the people of Crawley for their fantastic generosity for donating an absolutely magnificent sum of £55,436 to the British Legion Poppy Appeal 2014/15.

This was a record sum beating the previous year’s total by £10,000. We had a target of a 10 per cent increase on 2013/14 and to raise more than £50,000, but to more than double that was superb.

Thank you, Crawley. Thank you for your support for this very important cause.

Keith Blake, chairman, Crawley and District Branch of the Royal British Legion
