Meadowmat presents cheque to Royal British Legion

Chris Carr and Angela Lambert from Q Lawns have presented a cheque for £1046 to the Feltwell Branch of the Royal British Legion. The money was raised through sales of Meadowmat's Passchendaele Poppy wild flower turf.

Between March and June 2014, Passchendaele Poppy Meadowmat was launched to commemorate the centenary of the beginning of the First World War. For every square metre of the wildflower turf that was sold, Meadowmat donated 50 pence to the Royal British Legion. Culminating in a total donation of over one thousand pounds.

Director Colin Brown said "We wanted to remember the sacrifice that was made by so many people all of those years ago. Many of us at Q Lawns have connections with the armed forces, my own son for one. It's a comfort to know that organisations like the Royal British Legion are there to support service people, veterans and families when needed. It's a pleasure to be able to help raise money, however little it may be in the big scheme of things."

Chris Carr added "The Royal British Legion work tirelessly in our community, even though many of the residents of Feltwell probably don't realise it. An awful lot of work happens behind the scenes to ensure that ex servicemen who are in difficulty get the help they need. It's all very discreet and often goes unnoticed but nevertheless it is vital and I would like to pay tribute to people like George and Joyce Lambourne who put in a lot of time for no financial reward. I'm pleased that our customers have raised so much money between them and I'm even more pleased to be handing it over to boost our local poppy appeal.

In June 2014, Passchendaele Poppy Meadowmat formed part of one of the winning show gardens at Gardeners World Live. "Poets Last Rest" was designed by Tony Harding and Chris Cooper-Hayes and reflects a young man's last view of England before leaving to fight in WW1. The prize was well deserved and Meadowmat were proud to have supplied the garden. Read more about the winning garden design
