Last Friday, our New Dawn service member, Timothy Elson, presented Poplar All Saints Church with a 5ft bird box in the shape of a poppy, just in time for their Remembrance Sunday Service.
Timothy was quoted on the day saying; “I made a large poppy last year at JSC and it has been sitting in our shed for over a year. I thought it would be a good idea to donate the poppy to our local church ‘Poplar All Saints Church’. My Manager Trevor Pearson and our Communications officer, Josh Bailey- Schindler, came with me on Friday 9th November to the church to donate the poppy. The church were very happy and they told me they would use this for their display on Remembrance Day on 11th November 2018. This being 100 years since the end of the first world war, I thought it would be a good thing to do to remember all the troops who give up their lives for us.
Lest we forget”
