Francis Samuels, Jewish Care Scotland volunteer, placed 56 Magen David poppies in the Glasgow Memorial Garden, George Square on Sunday 5th November 2017. It raised a fantastic £84 for Royal British Legion.
Francis wanted to find a way for all at JCS to participate directly in the UK wide Remembrance Sunday 2017 commemorations. The wooden Magen David poppies were a brilliant way to get involved.
In the run up to Sunday 5th November Francis gave JCS clients, volunteers and staff the opportunity to donate for a Magen David poppy. It enabled everyone at JCS to make their own very personal contribution to remember each generation of young Jewish men who served their country in the British armed forces, during WWI and WWII.
Francis said: “Everyone at JCS embraced the event with such warmth and enthusiasm that I will be engaging with the wider Glasgow Jewish Community in 2018 to build on this year’s success. I hope everybody gets involved, from primary school pupils through the generations to great grandparents.”
