Poppyfields was set up by my Brother & Sister in Law after my niece Poppy was diagnosed with a brain tumour aged 14 mths. 8 years later on April 23rd this year and after her 4th brain operation she was confirmed to be in remission. Poppyfields has raised over £170,000 for Birmingham Childrens Hospital and their research and treatment of child brain tumours. I am simply trying to raise as much money for BCH as possible with the help of kind friends and family. I am relying on people to bid honestly and without mischievous intent. Thankyou and good luck.
