Collateral Damage White Poppy Project
Drop off your white poppies at the museum for this national project
“Collateral Damage” is a project to honour the victims of wars during and since World War One.
It is an independent project, supported by the Peace Pledge Union and other groups. It complements the PPU’s distribution of thousands of white poppies in the run-up to Remembrance Sunday every year.
The project involves making unique textile white poppies, each honouring a particular victim or victims of war.
During 2018 the project will develop as PPU prepare to commemorate the centenary of the ending of World War One. You can either make your own to wear, or as a gift for someone, or you can make one, or a wreath, that can be sent to join a central installation in London.
To make the poppies there is a guide available to help you whitepoppyguide
The Peace Museum is a drop off point for these poppies, so if you as an individual, or as a group, would like to make some you can bring them to the museum and we will send them for you. We welcome you to visit the museum, in particular our Conscientious Objection gallery, and look at our collection relating to the First World War. We also sell white poppies, produced by the PPU all year round.
Alternatively you could send your poppies in individually. These should be sent (by 8th October 2018) to: Collateral Damage White Poppies, c/o QPSW, Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ.
