As my husband and I are both military veterans the poppy is an important symbol of comradeship and remembrance for both of us and the RBL are a charity very close to our hearts.
We took our daughters to see the installation in situ at The Tower of London. As soon as we knew we could purchase a poppy ourselves we signed up, I wish we could have afforded one each.
I made the frame using a plastic tray and the picture is a postcard, both were sold by charities. I love to recycle and repurpose items so I love that our recycled poppy is being displayed using recycled objects and 3 charities recieved funds in the process.
