Remembrance donations support veterans

Nearly £800 was donated to charities working with armed service veterans as a result of collections held in Burbage during commemorations to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

The Royal British Legion received a total of £579.13 from donations made towards commemorative booklets, produced by the parish council's WWI Commemoration working party, and from half of the proceeds of commemorative concerts staged in Burbage Millennium Hall by Burbage community choir Harmonic Voices.

Help For Heroes received the other half of the concert proceeds, totalling £220.
