Thank you for taking the time to visit our Croydon Residents' Associations 'JustGiving' page.

This year is 100 years since the end of the First World War and the Royal British Legion launched a ‘Thank You Movement' from 8th August to run through 100 days until Armistice Day on Sunday 11 November. They are inviting members of the public to say "Thank You" to all those who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

The Residents' Associations of Riddlesdown,  Sanderstead, Selsdon, Coulsdon West, East Coulsdon, Old Coulsdon, Hartley & District, Kenley & District, Spring Park and People for Portland have fixed 45cm poppies on lampposts to some streets in these areas, from 8 August until 11 November 2018. The Residents' Associations have made a donation to the Royal British Legion for these poppies on the lampposts.

Croydon Council and Skanska (who maintain the street lighting) have been very supportive in allowing the Residents' Associations to do this.

All Croydon residents are also invited to join all the Residents' Associations by making a donation if they wish, to support this cause, maybe in memory of a relative, or friend.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
