Poppy Appeal Campaign 2019

Just like that, it’s Poppy Appeal time again.

Every year we run our campaign in support of the Royal British Legion, supporting veterans, often creating a lifeline for those who have done so much for us.

We would also like to thank the Farnham British Legion, whose support to our campaigns is above and beyond what we could ever wish for. You can read about the wonderful commemorative event at Farnham Castle that they invited us to last year here


Did you know?

Did you know that the minutes silence that we observe to remember all those who have fallen is of extra special importance in Farnham?

In May 1916, the first minutes silence observed as part of remembrance day took place just at the bottom of Castle Street in Farnham. This is less than 100 metres from our boutique. On castle street you can find a commemorate plaque, marking this moment in history.


Over the years our total donations to the Poppy Appeal through your generous support is now in excess of £6500, with last years total reaching £1033.

Our Poppy Appeal window displays are now much awaited in Farnham and requests for our poppies get earlier and earlier each year.

It would mean to world to us to be able to reach last years donations total and with your generosity support I am sure we can reach our targets, to provide funds and support for such an incredible cause that at some point has touched the lives of someone we know.

 

 

This year our window display is a cascade of poppies trailing across out main windows framed with a bed of poppies representing the fallen, for those who fought and continue to fight for our freedoms.
