At the end of November Ilton Parish Council were able to present a cheque for £820 to the Royal British Legion. This was raised by the amazing generosity of the people of Ilton who sponsored the soldier silhouettes at £30 each raising £570, who ate breakfast in the Village Hall on Remembrance Sunday which raised another £160 and who donated to a collection on Sunday morning raising another £90. A total of £820. Thanks go to all those who donated and to those who co-ordinated the event including Grahame Mackenzie-Green and his team who organised the Memorial Cross and the soldier silhouettes, to Jacqueline Bennett and her team who provided the breakfasts, and to Kate Cameron and her team who organised the collection. Thank you to everyone who made this event possible and to all the people of lIlton for their generosity.
