Seeking volunteers for poppy appeal

Could you spare any time to volunteer for the poppy appeal this year?
Two of our familiar faces at Walton hospital - Dawn Grindey (Walton hospital canteen) and Lisa McKenzie (Walton unit - housekeeping) - are looking for volunteers to join them helping the Chesterfield Branch of the Royal British Legion selling poppies this year. 

Dawn (L) and Lisa (R) are pictured here with Pat Backhouse, a veteran's wife.  Dawn and Lisa are very actively involved with the Royal British Legion and helped to get the visit of the buglers to the Walton unit last year. 

They are now looking for volunteers to join them, sparing one or two hours standing with a box of poppies and a container to raise money for the Royal British Legion.

If this is something that you feel you would like to do, please contact one of the people below to find out more:
