Support the Legion – Middleton

Royal British Legion – Middleton

The Royal British Legion is working hard to support the most vulnerable in our society, be it older veterans that we care for, those who suffer from social isolation, or those who are simply overwhelmed by the challenges associated with the cost-of-living crisis.

Please can you support them by making a donation to their Poppy Appeal wherever you might find a collection or donation point.

There is currently a team of volunteers manning a stand on the ground floor of Middleton Shopping Centre, just outside WH Smiths and the Post Office. If you are passing by why not say hello and see what items they have on offer. They are collecting each week, Monday to Saturday, up to the 12th November.

The local branch has a base here in the Lighthouse Project, so, we get to see all the hard work and effort that goes into running the annual Poppy Appeal throughout the year, and we are pleased to be able to offer them storage and somewhere to work in preparation for events like this.

There will be a gathering on the ground floor at 11am on Friday 11th November if you want to join them.

Here are some of the volunteers and groups who have been helping so far.
