A nine-month investigation into historical fundraising issues at the Welshpool Branch of The Royal British Legion is still ongoing.

An official at the Wales headquarters of the RBL today confirmed that the investigation was continuing stating: “The investigation is still ongoing, therefore we are unable to comment.”

Back in February a spokesman said: “I can confirm that we are holding an internal investigation into a fundraising issue at the Welshpool Branch. No further comment will be made at this time.”

Last year’s Poppy Appeal in Welshpool smashed all previous records but new officials including a Poppy Collection Organiser were appointed at a twice-convened annual meeting which on the second occasion was supervised by officers from the Wales Cardiff headquarters.

Since then the head office insisted the Poppy Appeal be dealt with separately and reappointed Mrs Jan Williams as the Collection Organiser.
