Colin Brown, Honorary Organiser for the Royal British Legion in Mugla, Turkey, reports on the success of the recent poppy appeal and is  seeking helpers for next year.

Colin Said:

“This year was our first official poppy appeal for our area although it was low key it was by way of testing the response of the local community with a view to broadening our catchment area in 2013.”

“The Royal British Legion has asked me to be the Honorary Organiser for Mugla, Turkey and with that in mind I would be interested in talking to anyone who would like to help next year with the poppy appeal in their local area.”

He continued:

“This year David Cunnington and Rose of Uzumlu decided to be representatives in there area and did a fantastic job. Well done Dave and Rose.”

“The result of this years appeal was 2,553 TL and of this Dave and Rose Raised 1,000 TL and the remainder by the kind support of hospitals, restaurant’s, bars, and the Fethiye Crown Green Bowling Society.”
