Will you support  Remembrance Day?

Across our county, various events will be held to commemorate Remembrance Day,  held on Sunday 13th November 2016.

Our WEA students and staff participate in various ways.

One of our students, Mary, will be selling poppies for the British Legion at the Waterside Centre in Lincoln on the run-up to the day.

Last year, students on the pottery and creative craft courses held at Ancaster Day Centre also raised money for the British  Legion by buying crochet poppies made by support worker Charlotte.

All money raised from the sale of the poppies goes to the Royal British Legion.

The Royal British Legion provide practical support to serving men and women, veterans (ex-Service of all ages) and their families.
