School takes Poppy to its heart

A huge thank you to pupils at Earlston High School in the Scottish Borders, who got in touch to say they wanted to create their own ‘Tree of Thanks’. Pupils and teachers hung tartan hearts on their tree – many in tribute to relatives who served in the military; others to show their support for the Armed Forces community living in Scotland.

As well as creating an incredibly moving tribute, the school also raised a fantastic £141.21 to support ex-Servicemen and women in need.

Thank you!
