Tower of London Poppies

For months the awe-inspiring display of poppies which filled the moat at Tower of London wowed the nation - whilst also tugging at the heart strings of the 5 million people who visited the display.

After Armistice Day, 888,246 poppies (the total number of soldiers and civilians who lost their lives) were sold for £25 each with profits going to six service charities. When they were removed from the ground they were sent to their buyers with a certificate.

Whilst it was not possible for the residents to visit in person, Maggie Collins, Home Manager thought the residents might like to see the poppy she had purchased.

The residents had a reflection time - discussing how wonderful the Tower of London Display had been, especially as funds had been raised for six service charities.
