Gad’s students have donated their hand-made poppies to a local school after taking part in a community event to commemorate Remembrance Day.

Cadets and Juniors joined pupils from Brompton Westbrook Primary School at the new Kitchener Barracks development in Chatham to help The Mayor of Medway, Councillor Steve Iles, unveil a poppy art installation.

The symbolic flowers, made by Gad’s and Brompton Westbrook children, were created from recycled plastic bottles and placed around the Lord Kitchener statue.

After, the kind-hearted Gad’s cohort gave their creations to the Brompton Westbrook children, who will sell them to help boost their poppy fund.

Gad’s Headmaster, Mr Paul Savage, said: “Community is a big part of life at Gad’s.

We are honoured to be invited to support such a meaningful tribute to those who lost their lives in the First World War – our cadets are now looking forward to marching to the school’s local church on Remembrance Day.
