Our Birmingham team is getting creative with customers to commemorate the centenary of World War One.
Leading up to Remembrance Day on Sunday, the team has encouraged customers to get involved in art workshops to design poppies which will form part of a giant poppy display at each project with commemorative messages.
The first event took place this week at Sycamore Court, one of our older person’s schemes in Perry Common.
Gav Chahal said: “We had so much fun! Everyone got involved and enjoyed themselves and there was even singing ... you can't beat a bit of Frank Sinatra! One of the highlights for us was talking to Hilda, a resident who celebrated her 98th birthday when we were there so she was born in the middle of the First World War.”
More poppies will be made at Metchley Abbey older person’s scheme today.
