A Brighton based jeweller has raised over £2,500 for the Royal British Legion (RBL) by designing an exclusive silver poppy charm.
Scarlett Jewellery is donating £15 from the sale of each iconic charm to support ex-service men and women. The beautiful sterling silver poppy commemorates the centenary of the First World War and serves as a subtle, wearable memorial for people who have given their lives for peace and freedom.
The Sussex based jeweller has a long-standing commitment to The Royal British Legion and were one of the first jewellers to work with them, starting in 2005.
Charlotte Thompson, Community Fundraiser for the RBL said: “We are extremely grateful for the support of Scarlett Jewellery this year through the sale of their poppy charm. The poppy is a powerful symbol which is worn to commemorate the sacrifices of our Armed Forces and to show support to those still serving today and their loved ones.”
Managing Director of Scarlett Jewellery, Marc Rickard said the festive season should push the fundraising total to more than £3,000. He said: “Scarlett Jewellery is delighted to have raised £2,500 for this fantastic cause but we know we can raise more. With the generous support of the public and Christmas on its way we hope to hit the £3,000 mark,.”
The enamelled silver poppy costs £35 and is available online at www.scarlettjewellery.com. Scarlett will be at The Spirit of Christmas show from 4th to 9th November at Olympia, London – come along to see the full collection.
