Remembrance Day, the day when we thank and remember those that put their lives on the line for us fighting in was is set to take place tomorrow 11th November.
And to show their appreciation to those who lost their lives, a group of knitters and crocheters have created poppies and such, but it’s their latest creation that has sent the internet into meltdown.
A post to the ‘UK post box topper‘ Facebook page has gained over 85,000 likes and has been shared over 10,000 times. The Poppy display group create a range of fantastic designs but this one has seemingly touched the hearts of many people.
One person wrote: “These ladies are so talented. Have tried knitting didn’t work out. So yes hats off to these talented knitters”.
Another wrote: “Well done ladies it’s beautifully done”.
Website West Leeds Dispatch reported that Lisa Farrar, who created this piece, said in a statement: “We couldn’t have done the display over the years, without lots of hardworking knitters and crocheters.
“We’ve still got some of those fantastic ladies in the poppy display group and craft group: Denise Hobson, Lesley Denton, Elaine Stolarski, Danuta Skarszewska, Gemma Louise Brown, Julie Cherry, Karen Heppell, Shirley Flather, Christine Stockhill, Chris Mallett, Diane Whittaker, Janet Walsh, Mary and Ann and many more.
“Four years later, we’re still working hard to produce the displays for Remembrance Day as a mark of respect for the fallen heroes.
“Lest we forget and respect to all the hero soldiers.”
