Fuel Card Services employees raise £1,300 for poppy appeal
The employees 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.
The project was led by Fuel Card Services account manager Scott Mooney, an army veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Mooney said: “I have seen for myself how the Royal British Legion provides invaluable support to former and current service personnel and their families. The annual Poppy Appeal is not just about remembering the past, but about giving essential help to those in real need right now.”
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.”
