Help us commemorate D-Day

We need your help to make 1000 poppies to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of D-Day. The poppies will be used to create a display at Abington Park Museum, one for each of the Northamptonshire casualties of the D-Day landings. You can knit or crochet your poppy in any design, with a maximum size of 10cms and we've included some suggested patterns for you. Completed poppies can be dropped off or posted to Northampton Museum & Art Gallery, Guildhall Road, Northampton NN1 1DP by 1 May 2024.
