We would like to thank all the kind people who volunteered in their spare time to collect for the 2011 Poppy Appeal: members, local businesses and the general public who gave generously. The Amble Army Cadets also did a magnificent job collecting in Amble High Street.

Warkworth and Amble District Branch poppy collection raised over £4,000, a 33% increase on 2010.  The poppy appeal collection in Amble and Radcliffe raised another £1,240.31 with the army cadets collecting £680.70. ‘A big thank you to all involved. The Northumbria area has raised over £1million for the first time. A wonderful show of support for our veterans.

The Royal British Legion is one of the few charities that directly supports veterans from past and present wars.

If you wish to register as a poppy collector for the 2012 Poppy Appeal or wish to join the branch, please feel free to contact the Secretary on 07785 753100.
For only £12 per year you will receive a quarterly magazine and have the opportunity to participate in local and national events.  Our branch meets bi-monthly on Thursday evenings at 7pm with speakers, outings, and social events held regularly.  You do not have to be ex service to join.
