My story

[p][b]AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN AND IN THE MORNING, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM[/b][/p][p]Bristol Cathedral and College Green will be the centre point of the fortnight of Remembrance for Bristol, where we will create our own version of 'Flanders Fields' with [/p][p][b]1 Thousand Poppies for 1 Hundred Years for 1 Million Lives[/b][/p][p]On Friday 28th September Johnny Johnson MBE DFM, The Last British Dambuster, was joined by Serving Members of the Armed Forces in front of Bristol Cathedral to fill the first of 400 sandbags to form a trench around Bristol Cathedral. [/p][p][b]We would like to raise £30 sponsorship for each sandbag between the 28th September and the 11th November from businesses/organisations or individuals , which will be labelled with your name and message and will form part of the display to commemorate the Centenary of The End of WW1[/b][/p][p][b]We will also be planting 1000 waterproof Poppies on College Green, creating a beautiful and poignant display. Members of the public will be able to have a name added to a Poppy which will be planted in the display in the run up to Remembrance for a minimum donation of £2 to Bristol Poppy Appeal.[/b][/p][p][b]To be part of this very special event please donate here with your personal message[/b][/p][p]The Royal British Legion is the national custodian of Remembrance, safeguarding the memory of those who fought and died in conflict. This is an opportunity to Remember someone special in your life or to give thanks for those who have given so much for us. The money raised from this project will change lives for the Armed Forces family; whether it goes to fund one of our 6 Care Homes, provides a service family with a much needed break, helps with a crisis such as homelessness or enables a Veteran to be independent by providing an electric mobility vehicle – this type of support along with a huge range of other provision is provided by the generosity of the public and is truly appreciated.[/p][p]Bristol Poppy Appeal raising money for The Royal British Legion (registered charity no 219279) [/p][p] [/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p]
