KNITTED poppies made by a disabilities activity group raised £80 for the British Legion.

The Crofton Disabilities Activity Group, run by home care company Nightingales Golden Care, made the poppies for Armistice Day.

The Fareham group gives adults with disabilities a chance to join in activities.

As part of this, the group made the poppies, which proved so popular that family members and friends offered donations, totalling £81.60.

A cheque was handed to Pat Prior, a representative from the British Legion, on her visit last week.

Sue Rogers, from Nightingales, said: ‘A fantastic effort from this group and supported by a truly dedicated team of staff. Well done to all.’
