My apologies if I've put anyone on a guilt trip Sheldrake. It certainy wasn't aimed at anyone in particular. It was simply an observation that whilst the RBL would seem to be the charity of the serviceman's choice, there has been very little action on the donations front through the link in my previous post. Having said that, a few people have been most generous, and for that I am genuinely most appreciative.
I am on my local RBL committee, have just resigned from the District committee after 7 years and have done 5 on the County committee. Not to mention numerous early mornings flogging poppies in the driving rain at the railway station or organising live music gigs or dances in aid of the appeal.
Additionally, Mrs Shelduck is a case worker, poppy seller and helps organise the teas after Remembrance Parade.
