Molly and Mavis knit up tribute of 1,000 poppies

TWO members of East Thurrock Community Association have been busy with their knitting needles to produce more than 1,000 poppies which have been used to decorate the association’s club on Corringham Road, Stanford-le-Hope.

Long-serving members Molly Tuffee and Mavis Toms’ work is now on display and will be the focal point of a special remembrance fundraising event  next weekend.

The club will host a remembrance night party on Saturday, 17 November, in aid of the Royal British Legion in the members lounge, starting at 7pm.

It will feature themed music, raffle, a quiz and a buffet which is free to all, with raffle proceeds going to the Legion along with donations, including one from Corringham and Fobbing OAP club.
