Thanks to the generosity of caring people in Swindon we received approximately 2500 handmade wreaths, poppies and hearts which enabled The Trust to display them around Emlyn Square.
Most poppies were on display at our AGM on 4th November, and after Nov 11th they will be carefully stored until next year. A small number of remaining poppies have been made into broaches by our brilliant volunteers, and were sold from Swindon Hub, Darkroom Espresso and LoveBrownies to raise funds for the Royal British Legion. If you would like to make a donation, please do so here.
Special thanks to all those who contributed to our Poppy Appeal.
