Having raised £85 last year which I donated to Help for Heroes I set myself a challenge for this year to make 40 poppies to sell with all the proceeds again going to charity.
Over the weekend I did a craft fair and I took a long my prepared poppies in the hopes that I may sell at least 10 of them.
I have to say I was amazed at the response and I am pleased to be able to tell you that I managed
to sell a staggering
I ask for a minimum donation of £2.50 and so far I have raised
As I have another craft fair in two weeks and was hoping to take some poppies to this fair as well it now means that I am beavering away making some more, but I am not complaining by any means I am just so taken aback at how fast they have all gone.
I actually thought making and expecting to sell all 40 was a little optimistic but I will know better for the future won't I, especially as colleagues at work are also asking whether I will be making them to sell again this year.
A busy time a head I feel.
