Due to covid this year, many of our volunteers were unable to help & our fund raising activities were restricted. As part of the national lockdown we were not allowed to collect face to face in the last few days of the Appeal. As well as local businesses & schools supporting us in anyway they were able too, we're also grateful for Woodford Park Garden Centre for allowing collection days & a honesty table.
This years highlights included the Poppy Digger (supplied by Arnold Plant Hire) at the Avro Fair in August, Poppy collecting at Woodford Garden Centre & the Poppymobile at a local school

WW1 Centenary year 1918-2018. This years figure includes an amazing £7,000 that was raised by Bramhall Methodist Church "Festival of Flowers"
