Studley pupils selling poppies for Remembrance Day

Stratford Editorial 11th Nov, 2016   0

STUDENTS from Studley High School have been out in force doing their bit to raise poppy sales as Remembrance Sunday nears.

Year 10 youngsters took up strategic posts at places popular with shoppers and at the war memorial where their efforts were supported and appreciated by villagers keen to remember the fallen.

William Newsman, aged 15, said: “We were offered the opportunity to help and it just seemed the right thing to do.

“It’s really important that we remember those who lost their lives fighting for this country.”

Kevan Skidmore, who helped organise the day added: “We are all getting older and felt it was vital to get the youngsters involved and we have been absolutely delighted with the way they have responded. They are a credit to the village and to the high school.”
