  • It was held in honour of Bill Montgomery, a comrade who recently passed away

The British Legion in Mollina celebrated the life of Bill Montgomery, one of their comrades who recently died unexpectedly, by hosting a fundraising event for the Poppy Appeal. Over 300 euros were raised at the event, which was named The Bill Montgomery Memorial Race Meeting. “It was very fitting that Bill’s life should be celebrated in this way as he was an ardent fundraiser,” said Lesley Gonella, a poppy organiser.
