Warwick Poppies

Posted on by royvickery |

Exhibition in St Mary’s Anglican Church, Warwick:

‘These items are part of the exhibition & community project Warwick Poppies, which took place between 6th October and 9th December 2018.  The tribute featuring more than 60,000 handmade poppies was created to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.  The poppies are handmade by local organisations, groups, individuals and school children and also came from as far afield as America and Australia.  During the exhibition we welcomed over 45,000 visitors all donations received were split between St Mary’s & the Royal British Legion.’
