Poppies for Sale March 8th-9th

Some of the hand-made poppies created for the Armistice Centenary display in St. Mary’s Church will be on sale in the church on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th March between 10am and 4pm.

The poppies were crafted by organisations, schools and individuals around the world to commemorate the 11,610 men if the Royal Warwickshire Regiment who died in WW1. In the end more than sixty-two thousand poppies were delivered for the huge display which so far has raised £40,000 for the Royal British Legion and the St. Mary’s Fund.

For a donation to the Warwick Poppies fund you can pop into the church and choose some poppies. Tea, coffee and a warm welcome await.

More than 30,000 people came to see the display around the time of the 100th anniversary of the end of the fighting in the Great War.  The amazing ‘Warwick Poppies 2018’ project was organised by a group of volunteers. http://www.warwickpoppies.org.uk
