Foodsmiths – the “good food store” in Perth, ON. – raised $2,255.75 in November for the Perth Royal Canadian Legion with its third annual Poppy Project.
The Poppy Project, which is based on the sale of hand-knit poppies, was introduced by Foodsmiths co-owner Claire Smith after seeing an appeal for fundraising ideas put out by the Perth Legion. "It was based on the successful British Legion hand-knit poppy project." says Claire. "I asked our cashier and enthusiastic knitter Linda Anderson to tweak the pattern. She did, and our poppy project was born."
Foodsmiths supplies all materials to a core of volunteer knitters, including staff and customers of Foodsmiths. Since starting the project three years ago, Foodsmiths has raised $8,798.45.
One hundred per cent of all proceeds are donated to the Perth Royal Canadian Legion.
