Shropshire support for Poppy Appeal

Girlguiding Shropshire is very pleased to reveal that their support for The Royal British Legion has topped more than £3000 in the past year. Our County Badge Secretary, Marion Wynn OBE, has been selling the official poppy appeal badges online both locally and nationally as well as reflectors and other items, with all proceeds going to the Poppy Appeal. These sales, along with the funds raised by other units across Shropshire directly mean that the total raised by Girlguiding Shropshire currently stands at £3628! Well done to everybody involved.
