8,000 and Counting ….

8,146 … who would have thought that such a little idea would turn into something as amazing and wonderful as this.  On Friday we passed another milestone … thanks to all of you … it’s still quite unbelievable to me … but poppies keep arriving in the postbox everyday and with more contributors joining us everyday … I think our revised goal of 25,000 is more than achievable.  Big thanks to all of you who have contributed to date … and who have championed the cause and spread the word far and wide … we are truly thankful.  Next milestone 10,000 by end June?  I hope you are all up for the challenge. This photo was taken at the Hamilton Library last year as they embarked on their poppy challenge.


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.
