Thank You from Director of Fund Raising

Dear All 

I hope you are well?
It has been some weeks since the County Chairmen’s meeting in Haig House, so please accept my apologies for the tardiness of this email. 

I wish to reiterate my thanks to you, your Branches and Members for the support you give to the Poppy Appeal. This year has been another remarkable year, with the total today standing at £43,515,260.45! Compared to last year’s figure of £41,741,071.33 year to date, we are currently 4.25% up.

This fantastic success is down to a team effort; without your support and working together with the Community Fundraising and Poppy Appeal team, we would not be able to achieve what we have.

Year on year, the demand for the poppy increases and each year you and your teams help us to meet that demand. I think we should be truly proud of what has been achieved this year, we have been able to raise such a substantial amount of funds, ensuring that The Royal British Legion can continue to support those who needs us, when they needs us.

On my behalf, please will you pass my thanks on to your Branches and Members. 

Here’s to another successful year! 

Kind regards 

Claire

BRILLIANT FUND RAISING IDEA

Just received this from our County Fund Raising Maestro Fi Dobson:

 

I am pleased to let you know that The Royal British Legion Pub Quiz guides are now available for you to order. 

 

We are hoping for as many pubs in your Districts as possible to get involved and host a quiz night during the month of April and if we can gather momentum, we will then look to promote this again in the Autumn. 

 

The RBL Pub Quiz packs include everything your pub needs to host a quiz and to raise money for the Armed Forces community. They include: 

 

  • Question & answer sheets
  • Handy quiz fundraising guide
  • Beer mats
  • Balloons and bunting
  • Collection box
  • Joker cards 

 

Your pub can pick & mix their quiz rounds and choices include: British films, British heroes, sports, darts board challenge, taste test relay and many, many more. 

 

To order your pub quiz pack simply order by either calling  0333 011 4500 or email pubquiz@britishlegion.org.uk 

 

It’s a fantastic pack and really easy to use. Please encourage your ‘local’ to give it a go! It’s a win-win – the pubs make money and so do we!!! 

 

If you have any queries, do let me know. 

 

Very good luck and I look forward to hearing from you. 

 

Very best wishes 

 

Fi
