Vale shoppers prove 'Every Little Helps' for poppy display

Evesham Editorial 28th Oct, 2020   0

CARING Vale residents have responded to a rallying call to create a memorable display of poppies.

Tesco bosses on Worcester Road made the call in response to the decimated Remembrance services next month because of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

With no parades or church services in Evesham on offer, supermarket chiefs launched an emotional appeal in a bid to show their respect for the fallen.

Their pleas have already yielded impressive results with a stunning display already on offer in the store’s foyer.




Residents can still attach their own poppies to the display in person.

Lindsay Roach, community champion at Evesham Tesco, said: “Our attempt is to fill the foyer window with a mass of poppies by Remembrance Sunday on November 8 to pay our respects to those who have given so much.


“This is open to individuals, groups and businesses, all contributions gratefully received.”

Donations to the Poppy Appeal can be made in store this year and paper poppy’s will be on sale.

Tesco’s plans have been supported by the town’s Poppy Appeal co-ordinator Fiona George.
