People's Poppies

For a third consecutive year, this Remembrance Day we will be covering Mansfield Market Place in thousands of woollen poppies while raising money for the Royal British Legion.

We need your help to make this happen!

Knit or crochet as many poppies as you like, leaving two pieces of yarn at the back so they can be attached to netting, and deliver them to the Mansfield Civic Centre by Friday 20 September.

Be sure to leave your name too so we can thank you.

Please use these knit and crochet patterns [619kb] (opens in new window), that were supplied by the former Yankee Yarns group, to help you make the poppies.
