The year 2007 total for the Bride Valley,house to house collection,Band Concert, Coffee morning,Church collections and static points around the Valley amounted to £3504. A special thank you to the collectors who spent their valuable time selling the poppies. A thank you also to all of the public houses and firms that have a box displayed throughout the year. We must also thank St. Mary's Church, Burton Bradstock who agreed to having
the collection on Remembrance Day Services donated to the Poppy Appeal Fund.

All the year round the Legion Benevolent Fund - The Poppy Appeal - benefits from legacies and a huge variety of sponsored events and fund-raising functions. But the peak of our fund-raising effort comes in the run up to the Legion's Festival of Remembrance and Remembrance Sunday, when the nation proudly remembers those who died that we might live.

In early November some 350,000 legion volunteers take to the streets with poppies and collecting boxes, raising millions of pounds for the Poppy Appeal that funds our benevolent work.

In 2006 the total collected was £26,015,863.42p the highest total in the Poppy Appeal history, a rise of 5.3% over 2005

Every year members of the Branch in November visit each of the Valleys war memorials to lay a wreath and to show their respect to the people who died in the two world wars.
