Clitheroe Royal British Legion held a Poppy Ball at the RBL club, Whalley Road, to help boost this year’s Poppy Appeal total.

The event was well-attended and a total of £702 was raised by various means, including the sale of hand-knitted poppies by Margaret Taylor, Florence Atkinson and Pat Baron, raising a total of £265.

Ralph (Ian) Fullerton and Damien Starkie took part in a sponsored “Octsober”, where they went for the whole of October abstaining from alcohol, raising a total of £237.

£200 was raised in raffle and ticket sales, bringing the total raised for the 2014 Poppy Appeal to £11,708.45.
