Local MP and MSPs raise £1,918.00 for Poppy Appeal

Following their recent expedition to the summit of Craighorn in the Ochil Hills to raise money for Poppy Scotland, Luke Graham MP, Liz Smith MSP and Alexander Stewart MSP presented a cheque for £1,918 to Jodi Wittan from Poppy Scotland.

 

In recognition of the centenary year of the First World War Armistice, the Scottish Conservative colleagues undertook the walk to commemorate the sacrifice made in the war, and to raise money for the charity, which provides help to service personnel and their families.

 

During the handover, Ronnie Proctor MBE FSA Scot from the Black Watch Museum provided an engaging presentation on the Salonica Front during the Great War.

 

Luke Graham MP commented:

 

“It is a real pleasure for us to host Jodi Wittan from Poppy Scotland and Ronnie Proctor from the Black Watch Museum and hand over our 1918 cheque.  This money is helping to provide vital services for veterans and support those who need it most.

 

Our constituency’s contribution is evident on the war memorials in each town and village in Perth & Kinross, and Clackmannanshire. It is right to remember the sacrifice of those brave men and women, and work so it does not happen again.”
