A UNIQUE tribute to honour Britain's First World War soldiers will be on display at Crowngate Shopping Centre’s Chapel Walk in the run up to Remembrance Sunday.

To support this year's Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal an interactive sculpture honouring the one million UK and Commonwealth service men and women who lost their lives will be in place between Friday, October 27, and Sunday, November 12.

People can buy a commemorative poppy from British Legion volunteers in Crowngate and write on their personal message before placing it on the sculpture, where each poppy will stay until after Remembrance Sunday.

The sculpture has space for up to 3,000 poppies, which last year was filled to capacity and raised a staggering £15,000, which is up 200 per cent on previous amounts raised locally for this initiative.

Allan Poyner, Poppy Appeal organiser for Worcester, said: "I feel that the poppy sculpture that is displayed in October and November is a fantastic way of people being able to pay respects to the fallen in an interactive way."

Crowngate Centre Manager Erica Burlace added: “We wanted the sculpture to look as striking as possible and really encourage people to write their own messages; to keep remembering and raise much needed funds.

"The Crowngate team is proud to be doing this project again this year and we really hope people visiting Worcester city centre will come and get involved.”
