The Stoke Gifford branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL) is holding its popular annual fundraising concert for the Poppy Appeal on Saturday (29th March) in the Church Rooms, North Road, Stoke Gifford.
The concert starts at 7.30pm, doors open at 7pm. Tickets are £6, (including refreshments), and can be ordered in advance from Terry Webber (0117 909 1486) or John Moloney (07802 535591).
This year, the concert features popular doo-wop singing trio ‘The Cat’s Pyjamas’ (pictured above).
Money raised for the Poppy Appeal goes to the RBL’s Welfare Fund which helps the Legion to provide welfare and support to current and ex-service personnel and their families. Nationally, the RBL spends £1.6 million EVERY week on its welfare work.
Branch press officer David Bell said:
“I hope the public will support this event again this year – our concerts are always very popular and help us raise much needed funds for the Poppy Appeal, which funds the important welfare work that the Royal British Legion does.”
Many are offering their services and facilities for free, including St Michael’s Church and The Cat’s Pyjamas themselves.
The Stoke Gifford Branch of the Royal British Legion is also planning another ‘Tri Services Military Event’ this year – on Sunday 7th September at the Mile Straight Sports and Social Club, New Road, Stoke Gifford.
