Poppy auction funds handed to Weston's Royal British Legion

9th December 2015

Categories: News

Funds raised from the auction of a giant glass poppy have been presented to Weston-super-Mare’s branch of the Royal British Legion.

The Bristol Blue Glass poppy was commissioned by the tourist attraction Puxton Park to commemorate Armistice Day.

The winning bid for the piece of £200 was made by local estate agent David Plaister, who visited Weston Royal British Legion HQ in Beach Road to hand over cheque.

Puxton’s Alistair Mead said: “We would like to extend a huge thank you to Sharon Crapanzano of Bristol Blue Glass for becoming involved in this joint project.

“The beautiful poppy will now be a lasting reminder of those who fought and died during the conflict and can be seen at the David Plaister office, in South Parade, Weston.

“At the same time it has raised £200 for the Royal British Legion, which will allow it to continue offering valuable retreats to members of the Armed Forces.”
