Portishead 100 Poppies
12 Nov 2018

To mark the World War One Centenary this November, the coastal town of Portishead worked hard to raise £10,000 for the Royal British Legion by getting 100 local businesses to sponsor 100 Poppies.

Each poppy, one for each centenary year, was displayed on 100 of the 108 stone pillars of the Full Fathhom Five Sculpture at the marina to create one giant poppy to be displayed throughout the remembrance period. We were absolutely delighted to sponsor a poppy for £100 to support this significant remembrance period and it was fantastic to be a part of such a unique campaign. 

The money raised from the campaign will be donated to the Royal British Legion to continue the invaluable work that they do to support serving and ex-service personnel and their families.
