Plea for new poppy volunteers in Blackburn
3:04pm Monday 30th September 2013 in News
THE Royal British Legion in Blackburn is seeking a new generation of volunteers for this year’s Poppy Appeal.
The charity’s Blackburn branch Poppy Appeal organiser, Eddie Maxwell, said each year volunteer numbers dropped in Blackburn as many older collectors decided they could no longer help.
Mr Maxwell said: “They have well and truly done their bit, and now we need to focus on new faces to come forward and lend a hand. Volunteers give anything from two hours to two weeks of their time to collect on our stalls in supermarkets and work places across the country.”
Anyone interested in helping can contact Mr Maxwell on 01254 692216.
