Creative Chloe Nicholls has given the Poppy Appeal £110 from the sale of her knitted poppy badges.  A phone call from her father Blayne, alerted the Frome Branch Royal British Legion to this extra ordinary effort by 15 year old Frome College student, who had independently set out to support the Poppy Appeal.  Chloe met fellow crafters at the Assembly Rooms, and presented the cheque to the Chairman of Frome Branch RBL, Jane Norris.  In thanking Chloe, Jane explained how the money raised from her hand made poppies will go towards welfare work for veterans and their beneficiaries.

Spending time talking with other crafty knitters, Chloe and her younger sister Eloise, then helped with the Last Hundred Days Push for Poppies project by putting some finishing touches to the poppies being attached to the 6 combat webbings.  The display has since been much admired over the Frome Memorial Theatre foyer roof where it has been central to the Centenary Commemoration of WW1 Remembrance.

Chloe is always immersed in her hobby of knitting.  She has previously knitted hats and scarves for the homeless; knitted hats for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the RUH; knitted hearts to raise money for a charity to help in depression, and is currently busy knitting Christmas tree cushions.  She has plans to knit twiddle mats for the elderly, which will give sensory stimulation in memory loss.

For someone so committed to her needles and wool, Cloe does not see study or a career in textiles, instead preferring to have it as a hobby that gives her a purpose.  The RBL is so grateful for this donation, and acknowledge that all generations can provide great comfort in times of need.

Our congratulations go to Chloe on such an outstanding achievement!
