Miss Leake’s Remembrance Day Poppies 2019


Remembrance Day Poppies

Once again Miss Leake is selling students and staff her famous glittery poppies in support of Remembrance Sunday.

These amazing poppies are just £1 each, and all money raised goes towards The Royal British Legion. Last year Blackburn Central High School raised £200, fingers-crossed this year we can earn even more.

From 1921 the red poppy became the emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem “In Flanders Fields” written by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. Poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, and their brilliant red colour became a symbol for the blood spilled in the war.

Please join us in remembering the fallen on Sunday 10th November 2019.
