A textile artist is raising money for war veterans with a click of her needles.

Laura Bragg has roped in volunteers from Halstead and as far as Surrey and Hampshire to knit poppies for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

The £5 poppies are so popular she has already raised £340.

The poppies are due to be sold at Hume’s bakery in Halstead High Street and Elite Hair Design in Swan Street, Sible Hedingham.

They can also be bought online at www.justgiving.com/tiny-stitches or email laura.bragg16@gmail.com
