Final push for poppies from Melksham Hospital

Story posted on

THE Wiltshire Health & Care Community team at Melksham Hospital is appealing for a final push of knitted or crocheted poppy donations for their secret project.

As a team they have all been working to undertake a project involving poppies, ready to be revealed late next month, to be on display for the whole of November. Despite being overloaded with poppies of all makes, shapes and sizes for their project, the team are asking for a final push to make sure they have plenty to create their masterpiece. 

Vicky Smith, clinical lead of the community team said, “We need as many poppies as we can make before the end of October. Any size and design is welcome, but we do ask that they are any shade of red.”

If you can knit or crochet and would like to contribute to their cause, please drop  your poppies off to Melksham Hospital any time between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday before the end of October.

For any questions, please speak to reception at Melksham Hospital who can contact the team or email Vicky Smith on Victoria.smith 21@nhs.net.
