There will be a poppy display featuring works of art from 23 Island schools and other groups at Quay Arts Centre in Newport from Wednesday (Nov 3) until Remembrance Sunday (Nov 14).

The display was organised by the Island branch of the Royal Marines Association and designed by the Isle of Wight College Creative Industries Department, who will also be setting it up in the centre’s restaurant.

There will be an opening ceremony tomorrow (Saturday) at 3pm to which everybody is welcome.

As well as remembering those who gave their lives when fighting for the country, the project is seeking to raise money to support the education of the schools that have participated in the project. You can support the fundraising at justgiving.com/crowdfunding/iowschools. For more information go to rmaiow.com/wargraves.
