359 balls of wool and one mission brought together more than 200 of our employees last year.
The aim was to support the Royal British Legion by knitting poppies which could be sold to raise money for their annual Remembrance appeal.
The initiative brought together a wide spectrum of people from across our businesses.
In total our volunteers – some of whom had never knitted before – produced 3,629 poppies, raising £8,400 for the Legion, which provides lifelong support to members of the UK Armed Forces, veterans and their families.
As we speak the team are dusting down their knitting needles and preparing to raise even more money this year.
