RBL raises £1,400 in one weekend!


The August Bank Holiday weekend saw the Sturminster Newton Royal British Legion Branch manning a stall at the Stock Gaylard Oak Fair. The Poppy Appeal organisers, Anthony and Tracy Walsh, organised a fantastic draw – with the star prize being a unique bottle of gin made for, and donated by, the Royal Marines in Poole. It came complete with a Commando dagger in the neck that the gin gets poured through! That along with 12 other prizes, a name the Teddies competition and some generous donations raised just over £1400, split between the Poppy Appeal and the Military Association.
The branch would like to extend a huge thank you to all the organisations who donated prizes and to everyone who stopped by to buy a ticket, name the teddies or just to say hello. It was very much appreciated and made all the hard work extremely worthwhile!
