A team of employees at Bakkavor’s Spalding site who pledged their time to support this year’s Poppy Appeal for Remembrance Day has helped Spalding British Legion achieve a record-breaking year for donations with close to £31,000 collected.
Steve Scholes, a team leader at the site, and six colleagues once again helped the Spalding British Legion with delivery and collection of poppy boxes around the town as well as helping with the collection at Springfields on Remembrance weekend.
This marked the fifth year running Bakkavor has supported the Legion with this and the Bakkavor team has even had special fleeces made to show their commitment. 
Mr Scholes also presented Peter Lyon from the RBL with a cheque for £1,000 on behalf of the site. 
He said: “We are delighted to have once again supported the local British Legion with their appeal and have pledged our commitment for next year.”
