SPINNING Gate Shopping Centre is inviting shoppers to add poppy decorations on to rocks to mark the 100th year anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Visitors to the Leigh centre tomorrow, Saturday, will be able to design their own commemorative rocks for free between 11am to 3pm and leave them at war memorials on Armistice Day, Sunday, November 11.

From Monday until Saturday, November 10 between 10am and 4pm, Royal British Legion representatives will also greet shoppers at the centre to help with the Poppy Appeal by selling a range of poppies to raise funds for the armed forces.

Spinning Gate Shopping Centre manager said: “Spinning Gate Shopping Centre is proud to support the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

"With the poppy being a symbol of remembrance and hope, we thought it was fitting to have lasting tributes with the decorated rocks to lay alongside the war memorials.

"The centre is a proud supporter of the Poppy Appeal and are delighted to welcome the return of the Royal British Legion to the centre to sell their poppies which are proudly worn by millions of people."
