Support the Haringey Million Poppy Campaign

Two local community forums, Harringay Online and Bowes & Bounds Connected have teamed to up to create a living memorial to mark the 100 year anniversary of the First World War.

Inspired by the Royal British Legion’s new campaign, the team aims to collect enough money to buy one million Flanders poppy seeds. The seeds will then be packed and made available at shops around the Borough, ready for planting.

£1 in every 3 will go directly to the British Legion, and the rest will be used to co-ordinate planting events to get a million poppies growing in our area.

A hundred years on, it is as important as ever that we remember the sacrifices made and the consequences of such a terrible conflict.

By brightening the area with so many poppies, local people will be providing a dignified and poignant commemoration to the suffering of millions during the war.

If you would like to get involved you can donate through the campaign’s Paypal account here. You can also follow the two groups on Twitter using the handles @Harringayonline and @BowesandBounds.
