The UK’s leading employment charity for wounded, injured and sick veterans, The Poppy Factory not only provides tailored support across England and Wales to help ex-service men and women with physical or mental health challenges return to work, but also employs around 30 veterans and dependents with health challenges at its factory in Richmond; producing Remembrance poppies for the Royal Family and The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
The Ivy Café, Richmond has given a charitable donation to The Poppy Factory and this is the start of an on-going partnership to help raise awareness for this local organisation.
Keep a lookout for the striking installation outside the café from Friday, 1 to Tuesday, 12 November, featuring an abundance of poppies. The restaurant will also serve a special Poppy Afternoon Tea in collaboration with The Poppy Factory, available during this time.
