The leaves are starting to fall and the red poppy of rememberence is starting to bloom.

It is the time of the year when we start to remember all those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and give thanks to those who returned.

The Royal British Legion is the nation's foremost ex-service charity and at this time of the year needs your help.

For more than 80 years it has been ready and able to help all those who come to them for help and assistance.

It is essential we raise the funds necessary if we are to continue to give that help to all those who come to us in their hour of need both young and old.

We need help in the Bamber Bridge, Penwortham, Longton and Preston areas.

Will you be our hero and give one hour or maybe more to help this very worthy cause?

There are lots of ways you can help, go on give it a go you'll enjoy it.

Please get in touch on 01772 745839 and thank you in anticipation.
