THIS year's Cumbria Poppy Appeal launched this morning at James Cropper plc.
The Burneside paper mill manufactures the paper for every poppy worn at Remembrance time across the country.
Guests from the Royal British Legion, Armed Forces Champions and local dignitaries gathered at James Cropper to view brand new film 'Paper to Poppy' on how the poppy is made.
The Appeal was officially launched as former chairman of the company Sir James Cropper was given the first poppy by the Legion.
Guests were also given a tour of the mill.
