Thank you Barby

Poppy Appeal 2020

A massive thank you for your support and generosity for the Barby 2020 Poppy Appeal. Despite lack of house to house poppy sales and only a few collection boxes, the village raised £984.34 - fantastic ! Special thanks to Barby Village Stores, Barby School, The Arnold Arms and the Shooting ground, and to everyone who donated and encouraged others to do likewise. On behalf of all who benefit from the British Legion, thank you.
