Collectors will be based at the Sainsbury's store on Pound Lane until Remembrance Sunday on November 12.

Royal British Legion (RBL) members were accompanied by town mayor Ian Mackie and Norfolk County Council chairman John Ward for the appeal's launch on Saturday.

Last year's collection at the supermarket raised £8,500 in three weeks.

Julian Mogford, RBL committee member of the Thorpe Branch, has organised for this year's launch event.
