We wanted to buy a poppy because it was something so moving seeing all the poppies together ,I would have liked to have gone to London to see them all but I’m disabled so wasn’t able .It was our way of contributing to the poppy appeal .This was something that would never happen again and we wanted to be a part of it .one day when my grandchildren are older I’d like to show them my poppy and explain what it means .Its a part of history in the making .Ive left my poppy in the box it came in ,how I would love to have it on show but I’m very worried it may get broken so it’s tucked away in its box but I know it’s there and what it symbolises
