Residents and staff from Richmond Village Nantwich will be swapping their usual surroundings for
the aisles of a local supermarket as they take part in the Royal British Legions Annual Poppy Appeal.
Last year, the local branch of the RBL approached Sainsburys Nantwich to ask if they knew
anyone who would help in their fundraising efforts during the weeks running up to Remembrance Day. Olwyn Payton from the store immediately suggested the Village and the following week a group of volunteers sold poppies and packed bags raising over £850. This year, the residents and staff are hoping to raise even more!
Village spokesperson Nicola Morgan-Parker explained “We have always been delighted to
support the community work that Sainsburys are involved with; to also be
helping such a fantastic cause as the RBL Poppy Appeal is something we are all
delighted to do! It is wonderful that we have so many volunteers; one lady has
even offered to be there for the whole day.”
Residents and staff will be at the store on Sunday 1st November.
