Poppy seeds for every school in the UK28 / 04 / 2014
Every school in the UK will receive a free pack of poppy seeds to mark the Centenary of the First World War, as part of an educational initiative by The Royal British Legion aimed at helping young people understand the impact of conflict.
This initiative forms part of the Legion’s Centenary Poppy Campaign which aims to cover the UK with poppies during the centenary period in commemoration of all those who lost their lives in the First World War. The campaign was the idea of members of the Legion’s Greenhithe and Swanscombe Branch and has been rolled out nationally with the support of partner B&Q. Packets of Flanders poppy seeds are available in B&Q stores nationwide with £1 from each packet being donated to the Legion.
