The combined total for the Poppy Appeal 2020 collection for the York, Heworth, Strensall and Stamford Bridge areas at the end of January stands at £44,811.82. This will increase when supermarket totals and tins are added to the figure.

Given the circumstances surrounding this year’s collection we feel this total is really outstanding and on behalf of all the local Poppy Appeal organisers I should like to belatedly thank all those who contributed.
