A CHRIST COLLEGE YEAR 9 PUPIL, IMMY HAS BEEN BUSY FUNDRAISING FOR THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION DURING HER SPARE TIME.
Neath pupil Imogen has been extremely busy during her spare time, creating intricate poppys out of plaster and turning them into poppy badges to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.
Immy’s original inspiration came from the ‘Blood-swept Lands and Seas of Red’ display mounted at the Tower of London by artist Paul Cummings and the designer Tom Piper. Using this, Immy created a replica model for a ‘desk decorating’ competition whilst a pupil in Year 7 at Christ College. The hundreds of tiny poppys she’d created for this model took a huge amount of time and effort for Immy to make at home in her spare time. A passing comment by one of our Sanatorium Sisters, Sister Morrell, gave Immy the idea to turn each of the poppys into badges to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.
The Head of Christ College, Mrs Emma Taylor, kindly gave Immy permission to sell the poppys amongst the school community in the weeks leading up to Remembrance Sunday last year raising an incredible £135.25.
Immy had the pleasure of presenting the cheque to Mr Paul Flowers from the Swansea branch of the Royal British Legion alongside her mum, Linda and her fellow Christ College CCF Cadets. Well done Immy!
