The commemorative community wall was housed in a unit on New Conduit Street in the Vancouver Quarter in the run up to Remembrance Sunday and more than £5,500 was raised for the charity that supports service personnel, their families and veterans.

The commemorative community wall was housed in a unit on New Conduit Street in the Vancouver Quarter in the run up to Remembrance Sunday and more than £5,500 was raised for the charity that supports service personnel, their families and veterans.

It was the third time the Vancouver Quarter has hosted the Poppy Wall that encourages people to pause and remember all those who have fought in conflicts since 1914.

Abbie Panks, Vancouver Quarter centre manager, said: 'We were absolutely delighted by the large number of people who keen to show their support and pay their respects by sticking a poppy on the wall and making donations.'

David Norman, chairman of the Royal British Legion's King's Lynn branch, said: 'The money raised will go a long way to help ex service personnel serving members and their beneficiaries.'​
