Raising money for Poppy Appeal

Jan 15, 2016
Staff at the Whitstable office of Fuel Card Services have raised £1,337 for the Royal British Legion’s 2015 Poppy Appeal.

The project was led by the company’s account manager Scott Mooney, an army veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

“I have seen for myself how the Royal British Legion provides invaluable support to former and current service personnel and their families,” said Scott. “The annual Poppy Appeal is not just about remembering the past, but about giving essential help to those in real need right now.” 

Scott and his colleagues asked local businesses to donate raffle prizes, then sold tickets and made collections outside their local Tesco. The grand prize was a luxury weekend break, with other prizes including a recording studio session, crystal goblets and a DAB radio. The raffle and collections took place alongside other fundraising efforts within the Fuel Card Services office. 

Rob Webb, General Manager said, “Scott and his colleagues managed to raise £837 very quickly and Fuel Card Services was happy to add another £500 to that. As part of the Whitstable community, we were delighted at the generosity of neighbouring businesses.” 

The 20 raffle winners were drawn on November 11 by Anne Hill, representing the Whitstable branch of the Royal British Legion. She said, “We are very grateful to Scott, and his Fuel Card Services colleagues, and to everyone who bought a raffle ticket or made a donation. This will certainly help our Poppy Appeal.”
