Charlie Higgs, from Village Properties, will be sponsoring the limited edition badges in support of the campaign, which aims to gather money and support for the poppy appeal.

The badges, which show the Tilehurst Water Tower in red, along with this years theme of footprints, cost £1 each - with 100 per cent of the money going to the poppy appeal.

Charlie Higgs, along with Turn Tilehurst Red organiser Kate Taylor, recently presented Colin Edwards of the Tilehurst British Legion with more than £900 from sales of the badges.

There are still some available from Village Properties.

This year's event will see schools, shops, business and houses decorated from November 1 to Novembe 12.

All ages are encouraged to get involved by putting up a display, and organisers are trying to beat last year's event, in which hundreds of residents took part.
