Legion’s beach stall raises £260 for Poppy Appeal

THE Lyme Regis Branch of the Royal British Legion held a cake, tombola and book sale this week, raising more than £260.

The stall was held in the Marine Parade shelters and the money raised will be split between the Poppy Appeal and branch funds.

Branch chairman Ian Marshall said: “Considering the high temperatures and a beautiful calm sea most people were naturally heading for the sea to cool down, so on balance we were very pleased with the days proceeds.

“I wish to thank David (Holmbush Café), Roderick (Black Dog Tea Rooms), Mulberry Manor, The Cornish Bakery and Good Food Café and Deli for provision of jams, cakes and accessories. But without the support of family and friends providing a wide variety of cakes, tombola presents and books the day would not have been possible.

“Whilst this year we are very much focussing on the ending of The Great War, it is the modern generation of veterans who have been ravaged by recent conflicts, which makes both the RBL and our sister military charities all the more important in their support packages and we thank everyone for the continuing support you give this community, but especially to the Legion.”
