The organisers of the annual Poppy Appeal are hoping for a huge response from the Sale community.
Last year’s collection raised over £39,000 for the Appeal – now the Royal British Legion are hoping to top that this year.
Mayor, Cllr. Jonathan Coupe, raised the Legion’s flag over Sale Town Hall on Saturday to signal the start of the 2017 Poppy Appeal. Representatives from the Legion and Poppy collection volunteers joined the mayor for the ceremony.
The flag will fly over the Town Hall for the duration of the two-week appeal.
Poppies and a variety of “poppy merchandise” will be available from volunteer street collectors and can also be purchased throughout Sale at shops, banks, bars and restaurants.
There will be a poppy stall on School Road each Saturday of the appeal.
The Annual Service of Remembrance will be held at the Sale War Memorial, outside Sale Town Hall on Sunday, November 12 at 10.45am
