I must congratulate your group on the quality of their work and the variety of subject matter included in their quilts.

I am sure the idea was well received in the town, and it was great to see how some of the venues, especially Ty Hafan, went about displaying the work. I do not have a collection figure for the Poppy Appeal yet but I am sure your group’s work must have helped us and I would appreciate it if you could pass on my thanks to all concerned.

Next year is a long way off, but should you decide to do something similar I hope we can work together once again.

Once again, many thanks.

Best regards

Just thought I would drop you a quick update on this year’s Poppy Appeal as I am sure your ladies contributed to our success.

The Poppy Appeal as a whole has been brilliant for the Cowbridge area this year, which explains our being a little later than usual getting information out. The street collection plus that from schools, shops, businesses, pubs etc increased by 20% over that of last year raising a total of almost £13,500. Our total including money from other sources is already in excess of £16,000 and is destined to top £17,000; a record amount.

I would be grateful if you could pass on my sincere thanks and best wishes also to all for Christmas and the New Year.

I hope we can continue to work together on future Poppy Appeals.
