Congratulations to Nikki who is a joint winner of our December #showusyourproject competition!
December Winner: Painting Poppies for Remembrance Day.
To whom it might concern.
The project I would like to submit is not run of the mill, veterans at Battling On a veteran based not for profit community group created over 600 scallop-shell poppies for Remembrance Day 2022. These handmade poppies were made from locally sourced Cornish scallop shells and were hand. In total the veterans made over 600 poppies, they also made silhouettes of soldiers and a war horse as part of a display for Remembrance Sunday.
Their hard work and determination earned them a spot-on BBC Spotlight evening news on Remembrance Day, and a prominent role on CountryFile aired on 13.11.22
The veterans also created wreaths with these scallop-shell poppies, and they were placed at Plymouth Hoe, as a centerpiece at the Cornish County Hall, and one was sent on the Routes of Remembrance train up to Paddington station.
It has taken months for so many to be made by Veterans of various military backgrounds, and they’re incredibly proud of what they have achieved.
The poppies are now available for a donation to Battling On. The donations will help Battling On provide, support and activities to a wide range of veterans in crisis
Please see the attached photographs that cover the process from start to finish.
