Remembrance Sunday And The Poppy Factory

Three little words

If, like me, you observed the silence on the 11th of November or pay your respects to those that do not return on the second Sunday of November. it is still important to remember our duty to those that do return but have paid a high price to preserve the peace that many of us enjoy. There is still time to give to The Royal British Legion or The Poppy Appeal or one of the organizations of other nations that are listed at the bottom of this post.

The Poppy Factory

I make my donation by buying poppys. these, poppys, wreaths and other things are made at The Poppy Factory. This establishment has given employment to ex-servicemen and women since it’s inauguration but has, in the last few years, expanded it’s mission to find employment for veterans in the general workplace. If you would like to find out more about their work, there is more info in this link The Poppy Factory or take a look at this clip.
