Blackburn Market Traders recently raised a record amount for the annual Poppy Appeal.
Stallholders had collecting boxes on their stalls with the traditional poppies as well as a larger stall that was dedicated to Poppy products to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.
Alan Taylor, from the Spuds n Puds stall, who helped organise the stall full of merchandise, said, “Overall the market stall and collecting boxes raised over £5300, with the collection boxes on the traders stall beating last year’s total by several hundred pounds”
“It is fantastic to see this great effort from the stall holders in the market and the work from the local Royal British Legion that raised this magnificent total”
Some merchandise is still available for purchase.
