As part of the fundraising activities associated with the Lincoln 10km in April, a Justgiving page was created and linked to the Branch website. Initially, this was modestly successful and about 5% of the Branch membership used it to donate a substantial amount to the Poppy Appeal.  After the 10km was completed, it was decided to leave the Justgiving page in place to allow members, who felt moved to do so for whatever reason, to make a spontaneous donation to the Poppy Appeal at anytime during the year.  This has not been at all successful and a recent initiative, inviting members to donate in memory and honour of the D-Day landing commemorative events drew an almost complete blank.

It would be interesting to know the opinion of the membership as to the necessity to have this facility.  If it is not liked or required, then it can be taken down.

The just giving facility makes it easy for the branch to collect and members to give for the big feature events like the Lincoln 10k. So I say keep it in place for that and not think of it as a casual collection box.  The RBL seems too keen to continually feed off the same market sector; it's own members.
