The Willerby Kirk Ella and Anlaby branch of the Royal British Legion requires a Poppy Appeal Organiser (PAO).The position would suit a retired person who is looking to make a voluntary contribution to the branch,at the same time as looking for ways in which to improve what is already a successful part of the national organisation. Whilst the appeal is ongoing throughout the year, the main event is the annual appeal which covers the period last Saturday in October to second Saturday in November (approx). The person appointed can expect to be somewhat busy during Sept.Oct. and Nov. Anyone interested please contact Jenny Harrison Tel.653846(retiring PAO) or Dennis Woollons Tel.650907 (branch chairman). Both Jenny and Dennis are experienced PAOs' and will provide lots of support and advice in the organising and controlling of some 140 helpers. Past service in the armed forces is not a requirement. For the information of possible volunteers,the branch raised approx thirty five thousand pounds at this years appeal, and the Legion spends approx eighty million pounds every year assisting members  and ex members of our armed forces and their families.
