About 5000 Poppies

The 5000 Poppies Project is a community tribute of respect and remembrance for our servicemen and women, their families and their communities. Created in 2013 by sisters in law Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight in honour of their fathers service in WWII, the project has been closely aligned with the Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018, and has consisted of a number of small and large scale installations made from handcrafted poppies from many thousands of contributors from all over the world.

  1. Congratulations on spreading the word so well.

    ACH Group customers and staff are working on knitting and crocheting poppies to contribute. Some of our residents in nursing homes are working in small groups and independently, enjoying using their skills and pouring love into their poppies in remembrance of the people they lost.
    We will also display Poppies in ACH Group in South Australia during the South Australian Living Artists festival in August 2014 to promote this project.

    You might have to be 50,000 poppies or 500,000 poppies. I have a couple for you but injury is delaying their delivery. Well done Cheers Ledy
