Reading Rotary collecting on behalf of the ROYAL BRITISH LEGION POPPY DAY APPEAL

poppy day (2)

1240.57 was raised by individual members doing 2 hour stints each plus 1543.81 was donated at the table at the Riverside entrance manned all day by Mike Bissell & Richard Stone. In addition this year, the public could embrace technology & donate using their contactless cards which newest method alone raised 295.00.
So all together, this year's total raised was 3,079.38, a fantastic result from Reading Rotarians truly embracing Rotary's Motto of 'Service above Self'.
Mrs Pauline Palmer, the local organiser, was delighted with our efforts & sends her sincere thanks to everyone involved.
Here's to next year, maybe Saturday 2nd or Saturday 9th November 2019; put it in your diary now & confirmation will follow as soon as possible
