Thank you for getting in touch regarding this year’s Poppy Pebble Project.
As you may know Project Nova is an initiative that is delivered as a
partnership between WWTW and RFEA. It supports disadvantaged
veterans and veterans who have been arrested and enter Police Custody.
Project Nova started the Poppy Pebble Project to support their
beneficiaries with social isolation and honour those who served. The project has received an overwhelming response, with people around the world taking part and sharing their stories.
This year as part of the Poppy Pebble Project, we are calling on you to
come together in supporting and remembering our veterans during thesedifficult times.
If you haven’t done so already please join us in painting a poppy on a
pebble, place it on a war memorial or headstone to mark Remembrance
Day, taking place on November 11th. The pebble can be used to
commemorate anyone from friends, family members and even strangers.
If you have already painted your pebbles there is still plenty of time to
create your own story with your chosen person and share it with us by
using the activity pack below. The project is open until the end of
February 2021 and your stories and images will be shared on our website.
Send your photos and stories to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Colin Back, Project Nova’s National Manager, commented, “The Poppy
Pebble Project started off as a small idea on social media and it’s been
quickly picked up on a global scale. We have had stories from people in
the USA, Australia and beyond. It has resonated with so many people,
which is remarkable. We’re asking everyone to get involved and share
photos of their pebbles on Project Nova’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
This project has brought people together and invited them to share
stories of those who have served.”
Following Remembrance Day, Project Nova will host an online exhibition, showcasing all of the shared Poppy Pebble images. Share photos of your
pebbles on Project Nova’s social media channels Facebook @ProjectNovaUK, Twitter @ProjectNova.
