This year’s House to House collection in Ashwellthorpe, plus other collections mentioned below, raised a total of £563.19 which is a slightly higher amount than last year. Once again thanks must go to the house to house collectors in Ashwellthorpe Liz Ball, Carole and Richard Bradford, Annette Bunting, Lin Packer and Jennifer Robbie.
This total sum also included the money contributed by customers and raised from collecting tins placed in the King’s Head and White Horse public houses and Woodstock Hair Fashions – so thank you! Also included is the donation of £50.00 made by Ashwellthorpe and Fundenhall Parish Council for the poppy crosses which are placed beside the Ashwellthorpe and Fundenhall War Memorials to honour the memory of those lost in the 1st and 2nd World Wars.
But, without the generosity of all the villagers and, indeed, all those who contributed to our Poppy Collection, this vast sum could not have been attained. Thank you all very much.
