The Royal British Legion is probably one of the best known and well supported charities in the UK. The demand for their services is probably at its greatest than at any other time since the Second World War.
Our local Knaresborough branch is one of the Legion’s smaller branches. Yet, it still manages to raise over £30,000 in the four weeks of the Annual Poppy Appeal. That’s a lot of Poppies – and of course, Poppies need storing.
For some years the local branch has struggled to store their Appeal stock. For some time it had been operating out of a 20’ container in a Transport Yard.
Craven & Co became aware of the Knaresborough Branch storage predicament in 2015. We were pleased to provide them with some free office space and storage facilities, Including a number of Zinc Chromate 4 Tier Shelving Bays.
Paul Darley the Branch Chairman couldn’t be happier with the arrangement. Unprompted, he said that in addition to him and his colleagues being able to work in a clean, warm and dry environment the shelving made his stock control far more efficient.
This is a great charity doing extremely worthwhile work and Craven are pleased to have been able to make their work a little easier.
