The Heywood Veterans Association at Heap Bridge Primary School
The Heywood Veterans Association visited two primary schools for a cheque donation and presentation to mark the end of the Remembrance Sunday poppy projects.
The Heywood Veterans Association (HVA) visited Harwood Park Primary School on Tuesday 19 November and Heap Bridge Primary School on Monday 25 November.
Chris Harris, chair of the HVA, and other members of HVA visited Harwood Park and Heap Bridge Primary Schools to give a presentation to the students and school staff.
During the Remembrance Sunday poppy projects, students crafted handmade poppies with personal messages of remembrance. The poppies were put on public display following the event.
Each school received a cheque of £150 towards school funds.
Mr Harris said: “I would like to thank the people of Heywood and all Heywood Veterans Association members for their effort, time and hard work which has made Heywood a very proud and humble town.
“A very special thanks goes to the pupils and staff of Harwood Park and Heap Bridge for their poppy projects and moving personal messages which were all displayed on the front-surrounding fence of Heywood Memorial Gardens.
“They received very positive comments from the community.”
