Sue Ransome has been thanked for her hard work in helping raise almost £130,000 for charity.

Coun Ransome is an honorary Poppy Appeal organiser for Boston and district and has been selected as the Royal British Legion Local Hero.

She said: “I have been organising the annual Poppy Appeal for the last five years in Boston and in that time I, along with the hard work of so many dedicated volunteers, have raised the money for welfare work that helps former, serving members of the armed forces and their dependents.

“It is always a pleasure to see my collectors, old and new, cadets and college students, as well as the many shops, offices, pubs, clubs and factories who regularly help out.”

The Lincolnshire county councillor for Boston East added: “I am highly honoured to have been selected as the Royal British Legion Local Hero in Boston and would like to thank Sills and Betteridge (Solicitors) for the lovely award and beautiful shield.

“Lastly, I must thank the ever-generous people of Boston and district for the amazing amounts of money they donate every year.”
