Project Nova launch Poppy Pebble Initiative to mark Remembrance Day

Project Nova are calling on the public and those who served to paint a poppy on a pebble and place it on a war memorial or headstone to mark Remembrance Day.


Project Nova is an initiative that is delivered as a partnership between WWTW and RFEA. It supports vulnerable veterans and veterans who have been arrested and enter Police Custody.  

This year, Project Nova are calling on the public and those who served to paint a poppy on a pebble and place it on a war memorial or headstone to mark Remembrance Day, taking place on November 8th. The pebble can be used to commemorate anyone from friends, family members and even strangers. 

Project Nova started the Poppy Pebble Project to support their beneficiaries with social isolation and honour those who served. The project has received an overwhelming response, with people around the world taking part and sharing their stories. 

Colin Back, Project Nova’s National Manager, commented, “The Poppy Pebble Project started off as a small idea on social media and it’s been quickly picked up on a global scale. We have had stories from people in the USA, Australia and beyond. It has resonated with so many people, which is remarkable. We’re asking everyone to get involved and share photos of their pebbles on Project Nova’s Facebook and Twitter pages. This project has brought people together and invited them to share stories of those who have served.”

We would love you to take part and create your own story with your chosen person and share it with us by using the activity pack.  The project is open until the end of February 2021 and your stories and images will be shared on our website.

Following Remembrance Day, Project Nova will host an online exhibition, showcasing all of the shared Poppy Pebble images.
