Hatfield Town Council is set to launch the town’s Poppy Appeal this month but is in need of volunteers to collect donations.

Hatfield Town Council will officially launch Hatfield’s Poppy Appeal on Saturday, October 21, from 11am at The Galleria shopping centre on the first floor.

It will begin with a Scottish Highland bagpiper leading cadets in before the Poppy Appeal is opened by the mayor of Hatfield councillor James Broach.

Entertainment will include jazz band Dave Rance and his Rocking Chair Band and opera singer Jessica Bergman.

Also attending will be The Royal British Legion Riders Branch, both Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Clubs, and the 2203 (Hatfield and de Havilland) Squadron ATC.

At the launch a range of Poppy Appeal merchandise will be available to purchase and donations can be made.

The event is free to attend and all are welcome.

Sam Frake, Poppy Appeal organiser for Hatfield Town Council, said: “We hope to build on the incredible success of the 2016 Hatfield Poppy Appeal, and thank previous Poppy Appeal organiser Elaine Forman and the community of Hatfield for their generosity and support in previous years.”

If you would like to get involved in the Hatfield Poppy Appeal, volunteers are needed to collect donations at Asda and Tesco in Hatfield.
