Poppy collecting for Remembrance

This year's Poppy Appeal has been one of the busiest I've known! We've had all the stars from Coronation Street to Oldham Athletic and Manchester City supporting us and it has been wonderful. All of our volunteers are doing a wonderful job and we're being presented with full tins on a regular basis! I think that people are beginning to realise that this money is not only for our old soldiers, but also the lads (and ladies!) in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is nice to see so many young people supporting us as well. TRBL have been exposed to the younger generation and they are grabbing at us with eager hands! My friend has just come back from Iraq and Afghanistan and he did not know about the support that we are able to give him... he does now!
