The Sprowston branch of the Royal British Legion has announced that it managed to raise more than �13,000 with its 2009 collection.
With the help of stands at Homebase, Norwich, and Tesco in Blue Boar Lane, its appeal raised a total of �13,254 - a 49pc increase on the money taken in 2008.
The branch is now appealing for volunteers to come forward who would be willing to give up a few hours later this year.
The 2010 collection will run from Saturday, October 30 to Monday, November 15. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Valerie Hill on 01603 485232.
