Tracey Tremaine-Sharrocks, who is a member of the IVA and the Chairmans wife, is running the Virtual Poppy run, rasing money for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal 2020. To date, she has run 25 kilometers and hoping to run a whole lot more before rememberance day. The Poppy collection in 2020 has been hit by the COVID-19 restrictions, so it will not be as easy to donate or obatin a poppy. This is a great cause. You can safely donate by following the link below the image.
