Over £3,000 has today been handed over to the Royal British Legion, thanks to the generosity of supporters.

A total of £2,807.40 was raised from the sale of Chesterfield FC poppy badges while a bucket collection at Saturday's game against Billericay Town generated £562.57.

Director & company secretary Ashley Carson said: "I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who made a donation, either by purchasing a badge or putting some money in a collection bucket.

"We are delighted to be able to support the Royal British Legion in this way and we will definitely be talking to them about repeating this fundraising initiative next year."

The Royal British Legion helps members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families all year round. They also campaign to improve their lives, organise the Poppy Appeal and remember the fallen.
