Weʼve raised £310 to Nether Heyford British Legion for the wreaths to be placed on the war memorial on remembrance day.
- Nether Heyford, Northamptonshire, England
- Funded on Monday, 9th November 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Nether Heyford British Legion are not able to order poppies this year from the British Legion (individual branches cannot order them this year).
Poppies are normally sold door to door throughout the village and in the village pubs and shops to raise fund for the Nether Heyford branch of The British Legion.
A coffee morning is also usually held to raise funds but is not possible this year either.
The funds raised in the village pays for the wreaths that are laid on the war memorial on Remembrance Day in November.
The approx cost for the wreaths is £80.
All money raised including any over the required £80 will be given to the Nether Heyford branch of The British Legion with all results being published in the village newspaper The Prattler and online at HeyfordPrattler.org .
The village is proud to remember the men on our war memorial and the full details of the men can be found on our Roll of Honour online at heyfordprattler.org/ww1
After recently celebrating 75 years since VE Day of WW2 we cannot have a remembrance day with no wreaths.
Poppies may be available in the big supermarkets.
If you have any questions or comments then please do not hesitate to contact me.
