On Saturday 28 October, Camberley’s Park Street will play host to the fourth Poppy Day Launch in aid of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
Starting at 10am on Park Street, the event will feature entertainment and displays from the local Stagecoach Theatre Group, and Liberty Gymnastics clubs, plus other attractions. There will also be a static display of vintage military vehicles, classic cars and motorbikes from the Riders Branch of the Royal British Legion.
At 10.50am a parade of the Royal British Legion Standard Bearers, the Royal British Legion “Brolly Ladies”, Sea Cadets, Army Cadets and ATC and representatives from the scouting organisations, will march the length of Park Street accompanied by the Frimley and Camberley Cadet Corps of Drums.
At 11am the RBL exhortation will be given by the Mayor of Surrey Heath, Cllr Valerie White, followed by a 30-second silence. The Mayor will then officially open the Poppy Launch of 2017.
The fun will then continue for the rest of the day featuring a variety of singers, dancers and performers, all giving up their time to give you a good time – and hopefully encourage you to give generously to this great cause.
Radio Frimley Park Hospital will also be there.
Camberley Royal British Legion Chairman, David Kemp said “The Camberley Royal British Legion has been so successful in raising money for the Poppy Appeal over the years – we say it every year but the amount raised in 2016/17 surpassed all expectations and broke records locally, reaching over £65K – a fantastic effort by all involved.”
“We’ve really tried to provide something for everyone at the Poppy Day Launch this year – I would like to thank all of the individuals and organisations that are giving up their time to make this amazing day possible.”
