The art installation of red ceramic poppies at the Tower of London was the most iconic image to be seen in 2014.  888,246 poppies, representing the lives lost by both British and Colonial servicemen during World War One, were carefully placed by thousands of volunteers during the summer and autumn of 2014. Set designer, Tom Piper, brought the project to life, staging the poppies in a cascade spilling from a window into the moat. This magnificent effort raised over £6,000,000 for six Service Charities, of which £1,000,000 was donated to Help for Heroes.
