SIR - I would like to thank the kind generosity of the people of Barnstaple and surrounding areas for their charitable donations to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

The amount collected was just over �20,000 which was up 37 per cent on the previous year. Also many thanks to the collectors, businesses, licensees and Army Cadets who also helped achieve this amount of money.

The total so far for Devon is �865,000. Donations are still coming in and the Royal British Legion Headquarters for Devon in Exeter hopes that the final total will be over �1 million. If any person would like to attend our monthly meetings at the Barnstaple branch of the Royal British Legion, they would be most welcome. Please call (01271) 326914 for more information.

Ron Kingdon, Treasurer, Barnstaple RBL
