The Nerja branch of the Royal British Legion organised a Poppy Walk to launch this year’s poppy appeal. Nineteen walkers and two dogs participated in the event which took place on Sunday 17 October.

The walk finished at the The Chapel Bar in Nerja with a buffet and raffle which raised 150 euros. So far a total of 2,000 euros have been raised for the appeal.

The Royal British Legion is this year celebrating its 100th anniversary. Poppy appeal organiser, Dorothy Allen said, “Well done everyone and my thanks on behalf of Nerja Royal British Legion.”
