New College students raise over eight hundred pounds for the Royal British Legion

Poppy Appeal

Embroidery students at New College have raised over eight hundred pounds for the Royal British Legion by selling hand crafted poppies to staff and students.

The students used hand felted poppy blanks and decorated them with a variety of embroidery stitches, applique, vintage buttons and lace.

Due to high demand, Embroidery students were taking personal design requests to help bring extra cash in. This year there were also poppy rings, key rings and hair slides.
