1000 Poppies


Contribute poppies for our Remembrance Day project

We need a thousand hand-crafted poppies to create a tribute to the anniversary of WWI at Blacktown Hospital and Mount Druitt Hospital this November. 

The project is part of the 5000 Poppies initaitive, a worldwide community tribute of respect and remembrance to those who have served in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations, their families and their communities.

Our poppy project will create a poppy garden around the two ANZAC Memorials at Blacktown and Mount Druitt. 


Poppies can be knitted or crocheted. Poppy patterns and tutorails are available on the 5000 Poppies website:

We welcome poppies from staff, patients, visitors, carers, and our local community.
