Rye Poppy Appeal needs your help!

The Poppy Appeal Organiser in Rye has played an active part in raising considerable funds for the Royal British Legion over the years.

The current organiser is stepping down this year, so for this year’s Remembrance in November we are seeking an enthusiastic person to take on the post for Rye and District.

If you are interested in this post please contact Rye British Legion via info@ryebritishlegion.org.uk for further information, we would be pleased to hear from you!
