SCARBOROUGH’S Poppy Appeal is set to smash previous records again after organisers announced a huge collection in the town.
The annual appeal for the Royal British Legion currently stands at £58,901.17, after mammoth donations during the last two months.
The figure is already close to eclipsing last year’s £59,065.48, and comes from donations to street collectors, collection tins and various fundraising efforts.
Beryl Anderson, organiser of Scarborough’s Poppy Appeal, said: “I am overwhelmed with the support of the Scarborough people for our charity and cannot thank them enough.”
This year’s appeal runs until September 2012.
