Remembrance Poppy Brooch ~ Charity Appeal

Every year at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month we remember the end of the First World War and all who gave their lives then and since.



This year I have made crochet poppies to raise funds for the Royal British Legion remembrance poppy appeal (Poppy Day or Armistice Day) a cause close to my heart.  
The full cost (including postage) will be donated to the Royal British Legion. The materials, my time, packaging and postage costs will be my contribution.
Each brooch measures approx 75mm and is finished with a black button and a 30mm brooch bar pin.
(The pattern used is copyright of http://www.wendy-poole.co.uk/page1.php Fundraiser Poppy)
If you would like to buy a poppy and support a fabulous cause, please pop over to my folksy shop to snaffle one up!  The poppies cost £4.50 with £1.50 postage (I have resurrected my Folksy shop for a limited time only).

THE EXHORTATION

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
When you go home tell them of us and say -For your tomorrow we gave our today


~ ♥ LEST WE FORGET ♥ ~

I did this last year with my craft group, we raised £1,800!!! It all went to a local man who had lost both legs :( My friend is running it this year as it was so much work! Good luck, hope you sell lots x
