We're still collecting donations

On the 18th November 2021 we'd raised £330 with 14 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

The Whalley & District Branch of the British Legion are currently unable to act as an active organisation at present, as there are only few members left. Without support, the local branch of the Legion will fold and important events of remembrance such as the Billington & Langho Parade are at risk of being cancelled.

With help from locals, local councillors and community groups such as Whalley & District Lions, the plan is to still going ahead with the service at Billington Cenotaph. Plans are to hold the Remembrance on Sunday (14th November) with the parade setting off 2.45pm from Billington Gardens, with the service at Billington & Langho Cenotaph at 3pm.

A number of groups and individuals have supported the continuation of this event. Between those involved some donations have been secured to pay for some aspects of the event. Some of costs to be incurred includes the requirement of a road closure, music from the Accrington Pipe Band and the provision of refreshments to those who are representing the military and cadets on the day. Pledges are needed to secure the cost of a rolling road closure that will enable to act of remembrance to take place.
