OUR POPPY PROJECT

For a fifth year, small group of knitters at SI FYLDE have again raised substantial funds for the Royal British by knitting hundreds of poppies and receiving donations from people wishing to wear them.

Member Anne Halsall has once again co-ordinated the knitting group who work all year round to meet the demand.

Anne and her team will be handing over a cheque at the AGM to Spencer Leader, MBE, of the local Royal British legion who is extremely proud of their achievements.  He has attended the club on several occasions now and expressed his gratitude for the work carried out by the members and the support given for this worthwhile cause.

 

The knitters are already well underway with the 2017 poppies!!!
