Dear Wendy,

On behalf of Caldicot & District Branch of The Royal British Legion
I would like to extend our thanks to you and all who took part in Fortress Wales 2016 for your generous support of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. We are honoured that you selected Caldicot Branch to again be your chosen charity for the Fortress Wales event.

With your help and support, over the two days, we raised a total of £883 through donations, collections and sales on our stall.
This is a tremendous amount and it will all go directly to the Poppy Appeal helping both serving and ex servicemen and their families.

Many thanks on behalf of the Branch and all our beneficiaries.

Kind regards

Julie Wilson
