Appeal funds

GENEROUS residents have once again dug deep for this year’s Poppy Appeal.

GENEROUS residents have once again dug deep for this year’s Poppy Appeal.

Solihull Royal British Legion had already collected close to £30,000 when the Solihull News called on Tuesday.

A raft of volunteers have spent days counting the donations at the legion’s building, in Union Road.

But chairman Dave Mouzer said that the branch was still some way off a final total.

“We have to count 600 tins and buckets, coming in from across the borough - so it’s a very big job,” he said.

“At the moment I think we’re slightly ahead of last year, but I wouldn’t like to say for definite at this stage. There’s still several days counting ahead of us before we have a clear idea of the amount.”
