AN office worker's homemade Remembrance tribute was so admired by colleagues that she made and sold 70 of them, raising £100 for the Poppy Appeal.

Liz Shale, who works as an administrator at the Bradford Commissioning Group's Douglas Mill base, received the impromptu orders for her poppy creations after going into work wearing one.

The orders soon piled up and she has been charging £1.25 each for the poppies.

Mrs Shale, from Pudsey, said: "It's been a good adventure really. I've been spending my evenings making poppies.

"I wanted to do something special to mark the 100th anniversary since the start of the First World War. It's a nice gesture.

"I've had people coming into our office looking to buy one. It's been a fun thing to do.

"I will have to think of something else to do next year. I'm quite proud. They have just been going.

"I work with 50 people. Someone said 'where did you get that from?' when they saw the poppy and it went from there.

"It's just escalated, I've been absolutely overwhelmed."
