A SPECIAL shop has been opened in Portsmouth in support of the Poppy Appeal.
The Poppy Appeal shop has been temporarily opened in an empty unit on Fratton Road, next to Asda.
The shop will be open until Remembrance Sunday which this year takes place on Sunday, November 9.
It allows members of the public to buy special poppy wreaths and other poppy products, as well as the poppies.
Louise Purcell is the poppy appeal organiser for Portsmouth.
She said: ‘We can hold more stock. We get various requests, especially being a military city.
‘Lots of people are going somewhere to lay a wreath to pay their respects. The shop has been popular.’
The shop is open from 10am until 3pm, seven days a week.
