Two Weston funeral directors have been fundraising for The Royal British Legion and have played a part in raising £60,000 for the charity.
Howard Goodman Funeral Home, in the Boulevard, and Nigel Groves Funeral Directors, in Worle High Street, have been selling poppies, gaining donations and raising awareness of the cause which helps veterans, personnel and their families.
Tracey Challenor, owner of Howard Goodman Funeral Directors, said: “I would like to thank the team and our customers for their generous donations.”
Golden Charter and its network of independent funeral directors throughout the UK are working with The Royal British Legion and Poppyscotland to help provide life-changing support to the Armed Forces community. The money raised will help veterans of the British Armed Forces and their families with respite care, employment opportunities for disabled veterans, financial assistance, specialist housing and mental health support services.
