We're raising £3,000.00 to help finance a projection of Poppies onto Conisbrough Castle. To remember all that lost there lives in conflict.

Last year, poppies lit up the night sky and transformed Doncasters most famous landmark into a monument of remembrance. We would like to repeat last years very successful Poppies at the Castle event held at Conisbrough Castle again on the evenings of Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th November 2017.

The event is free to all who'd like to come and witness this fantastic spectacle.

All monies raised above this amount, and collections on the night, will be used to improve Conisbrough & Denaby War Memorials and surrounding parks. The money we raised last year has gone towards replacing the soldiers bayonet on Conisbrough War Memorial. This work is scheduled to be done in time for Remembrance weekend.

Here’s some of the feedback that we received,

“Fantastic night so proud of what was achieved. It was very emotional but also spectacular, well done”  Sharon W.

“A wonderful evening. Congratulations and Thank You to all who helped in the production”  John P.

“It was a privilege and an honour to have attended such a memorable. moving and unifying event, hope to see it again in the future” Mags B.

“A massive well done to all involved. Also huge thanks for giving us this opportunity to mark this time of year in a most touching and novel way.”  Seamus O.

  “Thank you to all the organisers and people involved in putting this superb experience together. On Sunday night my wife Shirl and I stood very close to the war memorial in coronation park. My relatives name is on the list of people who lost their lives serving their country. Allan Goodlad, aged 19 years of age, fighting with the Gordon Highlanders, died 6 weeks after D Day. We remembered you.” John G.

 Poppies at the Castle was also mentioned and commended in the first full council meeting of DMBC after the event. It was reported on live by BBC Look North News and many local newspapers and radio stations.
