freda petermouncer cake  Mrs Freda Rumbold, a Royal British Legion Poppy seller and Fund Raiser has been collecting donations in her village, Barton Bendish , since 1955. Her father came home from the RBL meeting one evening and told her and her mother, that he had volunteered them to take the 2 trays of poppies door to door and raise what they could.! She recalls her first total was less than £20.00 (a significant amount when rationing was on and times were still hard.) She has been her village collector ever since. Now in her 80s she has raised £700.00 this past 7 months. To acknowledge her loyal efforts to this cause and her continuous service she was awarded a bar to her 50 year badge, presented with a certificate and enjoyed a celebration cake at the recent RBL meeting. freda RBL certpreschair  Mrs Freda Rumbold, a Royal British Legion Poppy seller and Fund Raiser has been collecting donations in her village, Barton Bendish , since 1955.
