Kitchener Barracks join forces to commemorate poppy appeal

With Remembrance Day on Sunday 11th November, our hearts and minds turn to honouring the brave men and women who have lost their lives in war, as well as those currently fighting for our country. To mark this annual national occasion, the Oracle team was privileged to organise a special remembrance event at Kitchener Barracks in Chatham.

Oracle worked with two local schools, Brompton Westbrook Primary School and Gad’s Hill school to create a striking display of over 300 poppies, including two wreaths, made from recycled plastic bottles.

Carefully arranged around the prominent military statue at Kitchener Barracks, these poppies were proudly unveiled by The Mayor of Medway, Councillor David Wildey, the Mayoress Denise Wildey and Lt Col Stuart Whitticase, along with senior members of the Kitchener Barracks development team and the children and teachers of both schools.

A step by step instruction video demonstrated how to make the poppies, which was also available online to give the local community and our own team a chance to get creative.

To further mark Remembrance Day, donations were made to the British Legion and ABF Soldiers Charity.
