BIDDING is underway for a unique piece of art created by well-known local fundraiser Anita Georgeson to mark Remembrance Day this weekend.
The social care worker has already sold dozens of poppy pebbles to raise funds for the annual Poppy Appeal.
In addition, she is now auctioning off a larger piece of work called Peerie poppies on da Croft via her Facebook page.
Bidding opened on Friday morning and it will close at 11am on Remembrance Sunday (8 November).
Anita said she was on a mission again: “I hope to be able to raise a fair bit of money, it’s all for a good cause. I also still have some poppy pebbles for sale.”
All funds raised will be handed over to the British Legion in Lerwick for the Poppy Appeal.
Anita also plans to host an outdoor Remembrance Sunday event for the residents at Lerwick’s Edward Thomason care home where she works.
