On Tuesday 1st November 2011, Mr Ted Larkins, Chairman of the Royal British Legion Oswestry Branch received £150 from Cllr Chris Schofield, Chairman of North Shropshire Conservative Association towards the welfare of the local branch.
The money was raised at a wine tasting event held recently at The Walls Restaurant, Oswestry, by the Oswestry Branch of North Shropshire Conservatives. Chairman Chris Schofield said "We are proud to be able to support the Royal British Legion in this way; the work they undertake is an example to us all."
