We don't talk about poppies and the Poppy Appeal in March. We are nowhere near November, poppies aren't even out at the moment and everyone is all off the crimson and on to pastels when it comes to florals. However, my son is currently in the choir for his year group's production of WW2 musical 'Edith's Wartime Scrapbook' AND it is nearly the end of the tax year so now seems to be as good a time as any to close the 2011 total for our donations to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
As you may know, I make a range of velvet Poppy accessories that we sell through all of our usual outlets but from the sale of each item we make a donation to the RBL which is the equivalent of about 10% of the retail price. Details of the donation amount are printed on the back of each item's card and we update our total on our facebook page throughout the year.
So without further ado, it gives me great pleasure to announce the total money collected and donated to the 2011 appeal iiiiis......
Thank you so much to all our customers, we hope that you will continue to support the RBL in 2012
