A family friendly afternoon for children to come and get creative making poppies and stars to support the RSA and The Starship Foundation. Lots of activities provided so pop along after school and you can bring your own knitting or crochet materials if you'd like to have a go.
As part of a nationwide fundraising event we are welcoming the giant knitted poppy and star into Invercargill and our local knitters will be adding poppies to the two pieces of artwork that are travelling around the country.
Knitters & crafters are welcome to make poppies and stars and bring them to put on the donation table.
Donations can be made for poppies, stars, aeroplanes, poppy prints etc.
"The Poppy Flight is a nationwide project with 34 volunteer pilots each flying a sector on a 4 week itinerary in the run up to ANZAC DAY. They will be carrying two large pieces of knitted artwork that will be added to by the locals at the welcome events in each town. These welcome events will be a place where people can come and see what we are doing and why, and children can learn about the charities. See the Poppy Flight Story at www.poppyflight.co.nz and for the other ways you can help"
