Greetings industry helps remember

Poppy displays and Belly Button’s special card mark WW1’s 100th anniversary


WITH Remembrance Sunday this weekend marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, the greetings industry has been pulling together to commemorate the historic date.

Belly Button Designs have made a special Lest We Forget card available, printed by Windles Group, with all proceeds from sales going to the armed forces charity SSAFA.
And retailers across the country have made beautiful window displays, like Austin & Co in Great Malvern, and Highworth Emporium near Swindon – with Cardies in Stevenage going even further by coordinating a street display of poppies.
Owner Jo Sorrell came up with the idea for the handmade poppies to be attached to the railings, on the path outside her shop, collecting them ready to be attached on Saturday, November 3.
“We’re aiming to make at least 126 poppies, one for each name on the war memorial on the Green,” Jo said, “and wow, what an amazing community effort!
“We’re overwhelmed by the beautiful and varied array of poppies that have been lovingly made and attached to the railings in the High Street.”
l Throughout November, Enveco are running a charity campaign where they wilkl donate £1 to the Poppy Appeal, which supports serving and former service personnel and their dependents, for every 1,000 of their Poppy Red envelopes ordered from the six stock sizes available.
