The president of Royal British Legion Scotland is visiting Seil this Saturday to open the Easdale branch’s annual sale.
The event on August 24 is from noon to 3pm at Seil Island Hall. General Sir Alastair Irwin will be doing the honours.
Over the last few years the branch has raised thousands of pounds for the Veterans Charities and Poppy Scotland.
Branch secretary Jean Alexander said: ‘We raised £2,500 last year which has been distributed between five charities and £1,599 was collected for Poppy Scotland last November.
‘Where other Legion branches are closing down, we are going from strength to strength with the great support we receive from the community.’
Jean and John Alexander and Kneale Smith of the Easdale branch of the Royal British Legion ran a book stall at Seil’s recent Scarecrow Festival. 16_T32-seilfair12-rblbooks
