The organisers of this year’s Poppy Appeal in St Neots are appealing for volunteers to come forward and help out.

Andrea Marr, of business TL Cobbold, is organising this year’s Royal British Legion-backed appeal and would like to hear from anyone who can spare some time to help raise funds.

Last year, the appeal in St Neots and Eynesbury raised more than £18,000 and Andrea is hoping to raise a similar amount again this year.

She said: “The more people we can get to help out, the more chance we can raise lots of money. We normally have a team of about 40 volunteers and there are a variety of different roles available.”

The appeal, which raises funds for current and former ex-servicemen and women, runs from October 31 to November 7.

Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Andrea on 01480 476136 or visit TL Cobbold in New Street, St Neots.
