A poppy appeal in Mildenhall Sainsbury’s raised a record total of more than £11,000 for the Royal British Legion.
The November appeal raised £11,195 and as one of the Royal British Legion’s long-standing corporate partners, Sainsbury’s invited volunteers to its Recreation Way store to collect the money.
A number of Royal British Legion volunteers visited the store in January to be presented with the cheque.
Becca Davis, store manager, said: We are thrilled to have raised such a huge amount for the Royal British Legion and look forward to seeing what the future holds for the 24-year partnership.”
The poppy appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every year in November.
