Maldon: Generous poppy donators praised

Maldon and Burnham Standard: Maldon: Generous poppy donators praised Maldon: Generous poppy donators praised

Maldon's generous donators to the Poppy Appeal have been praised in what looks to be a new record high in donations.

Poppy Appeal collectors across the district have so far amassed over £20,000 in donations with still more to pay in.

They are on course to smash last year’s record of £30,000.

Douglas Scurrey, 71, who has collected money for poppies in Maldon for 11 years, said: “The people of Maldon have been so generous, it’s amazing.

“A lot of people have stuffed £50 notes in our boxes, they have just shoved them in.

“It’s wonderful, I have never seen so much paper money in the boxes before."
