In the months of October and November 2015 Barnsley cadet groups, RBL and other volunteers joined together as colleagues across the country in collecting for the poppy appeal. On the evening of the 24th March, the Mayor welcomed us to Barnsley town hall for a dinner and awards presentation.
We as a Squadron did tremendously well this year collecting almost double the amount we collected last year, raising a grand total of £2499.25 for the poppy appeal. Very proud to have been part of the team on the street each week, enduring rain, cold and wind to honour those who need the RBLís assistance.
Really well done to all, but our two highest achieving collectors need mentioning in Cadet Pendleton and Cadet Bursztyn. Well done both.
It goes without saying that again you have acted in an exemplary manner and you should be proud to have taken part.
