Thousands of pounds was raised for the Royal British Legion in King's Lynn by people placing poppies onto a mural and making donations in the Vancouver Quarter shopping centre.
The commemorative community wall was housed in a unit on New Conduit Street in the run up to Remembrance Sunday and more than £5,500 was raised for the charity that supports service personnel, their families and veterans.
It was the third time the Vancouver Quarter has hosted the Poppy Wall that encourages people to pause and remember all those who have fought in conflicts since 1914.
Abbie Panks, Vancouver Quarter Centre Manager, said: “We were absolutely delighted by the large number of people who keen to show their support and pay their respects by sticking a poppy on the wall and making donations.
"We were really keen to run this mural again because it is important that the memory of those who fought and died for freedom continues to live on and is passed on from generation to generation.
David Norman, chairman of the Royal British Legion’s King’s Lynn branch, has thanked the Vancouver Quarter for the use of the unit. “It is important that we remember all those who fought in all conflicts since 1914,” he added. “The money raised will go a long way to help ex service personnel serving members and there beneficiaries.”
