First thing this morning, I was lucky enough to be shown around the wonderful Poppy Factory here in Richmond and what a start that was to the day! Not only did I get to know the fundraising team even more, but I also got to meet the wider team – the veterans. Those who were on the floor making the poppies, wreaths and the amazing specialised wreaths and crosses they create for ceremonies, royals and special occasions. I got to make my own poppy with Frank and even helped make a wreath♥️. As I mentioned before, I’m helping this most deserving charity to realise their dreams of doing even more amazing work, but this time in an updated building that’s fit for purpose. To continue their historic and desperately needed journey that started in 1922. I was just so honoured to be given such a warm welcome by these most wonderful human beings x Here’s to the start of this beloved journey….
