Tuning up for poppy appeal
A STIRRING tribute to our veterans and those who died in conflicts will strike up at Carmarthen's Lyric Theatre on Saturday.

The music will strike up at 7.30pm with Côr Godre'r Aran, from North Wales and the Richard Williams Singers.

"October is always the time when our thoughts turn towards Remembrance Day and this concert will be a moving and stirring tribute to the fallen.
"The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal is a cause very dear to all our hearts and I hope the people of Carmarthenshire lend their support to such a worthy charity."
He says the concert programme has been carefully planned to provide a varied evening which should appeal to all ages.
"Hopefully, the concert will also attract visitors from outside Carmarthenshire as we have a very attractive concert programme.
"The venue is very central in Carmarthen and I am sure the people of Llanelli will appreciate a stirring concert during an unusual lull while the town is without a major theatre until the new Ffwrnes takes over from the old Theatr Elli."
The evening will close with a tribute to the fallen and if you want to add your support to the Legion's Poppy Appeal, aside from buying a ticket to the show, the Carmarthen branch is appealing for volunteers to help distribute collection boxes and to man stalls in the run-up to Remembrance Day events.
