School presented with memorial cup for Poppy Appeal efforts

Written on August 25, 2021

A school in Edgmond has been awarded a memorial trophy by the town’s Royal British Legion.

Tim Armstrong, who is branch chairman and standard bearer for Newport’s Royal British Legion, decided to get a cup in memory of his wife who helped with the Poppy Appeal every year.

Susan Armstrong, along with Tim, helped the Poppy Appeal in Waitrose for the whole two weeks during the national appeal.

The Susan Armstrong Memorial Trophy this year was presented to St. Peter’s School, Edgmond.

This is the third year this has been presented, but during the lockdown period it has been very difficult to raise funds. All the schools in Newport and district help with the appeal every year for which the branch is very grateful.

They decided to give the cup to the school for their hard work because Edgmond came out on top collecting a superb £435.85.
