Framed print commemorating local men who lost their lives during WW1

To commemorate the 198 local men lost their lives in WW1 the Marple Poppy Appeal Team are producing an A4 framed print containing 198 poppies showing the names and year when each man fell.

They are asking for a minimum donation of only £10.

Marple Poppy Appeal 2018

Following on from the huge success of the new Marple Poppy Appeal Team in 2017, preparations are now underway for this special year, the centenary of the end of WWI.

198 Street Poppies
This year the Team will be putting up 198 street poppies across the Marple District in honour of the 198 local men who gave their lives in WWI. There will also be a fascinating "Who was I?" scheme that will encourage local people to learn more about the men who fell. More about these initiatives will be published toward the end of the month. 

Order your wreath
In the meantime, if you would like a wreath for your group, organisation, club, business, or for personal use to commemorate this year's Remembrance, please email poppyappeal@marple-uk.com.

The pictures below show various types of wreath with suggested donation.



The type C wreath can have a central logo which could be your own logo or a military one if required.

Volunteers needed for collections
Additionally, can you spare an hour or two of your time during the first week in November to help out on the Poppy Appeal stand in Asda or Wyevale Garden Centre? There is a fantastic group of volunteers from last year but more are needed this year as it will be the centenary of the end of WWI and the appeal is expected to have a very high profile.

Please contact the Poppy Team via poppyappeal@marple-uk.com for more information, to order your wreath, or to volunteer for helping with collections.

Thank you

Kevin Murray, Marple Poppy Appeal Team
