**The branch has taken the decision to postpone the event due to the weather forecast**
The Branch Secretary said: “The weather forecast is for rain and wind so it would not be a pleasant day for us to stand and not much chance of people wanting to stand and chat.”
The Thorne branch of the Royal British Legion is holding an open day this weekend.
Branch members will be standing on ‘charity corner’, next to the former Nat West bank on Finkle Street in Thorne town centre, to talk about the work that the British Legion does and how they can help in the local community.
A short film will also be shown, showing how funds raised through the annual poppy appeal are used.
The branch can offer home & hospital visits, bereavement support, representation at funerals and other assistance.
The event on Saturday 8 June is scheduled to take place between 10.00am – 2.00pm, weather permitting.
