Volunteers - we need you!

Volunteer for the Legion

Join us for the Poppy Appeal

Help us to raise £32 millionWe need you on our team in the build-up to, during and after the Poppy Appeal. And the earlier you let us know, the better.

Each year's Poppy Appeal campaign starts in late October and ends on Remembrance Sunday, and you can help us in all sorts of ways. Join the Poppy Appeal team now!

Join our army of collectors

There's always space for more Poppy Appeal Collector volunteers on our team, and we need you to help provide as many opportunities as possible for people to wear a poppy.

We ask for a minimum of two hours a week, and we'll put you in touch with the Poppy Appeal Organiser who coordinates the Poppy Appeal in your area. Our Poppy Appeal Organisers are volunteers too so they may take a little while to get back to you, especially if you're getting in touch close to or during the Appeal itself.

Collecting for us is easy and anyone can do it - you don't have to be a Legion member. You do need to be over 16 to collect on your own but you can collect for us with your group, university, company or regiment too.

Help us behind the scenes

Ensuring each year's Poppy Appeal runs smoothly is a big job, and we need your help to make sure it all goes to plan.

We need: 

  • Drivers with their own cars to deliver and pick up poppy boxes from shops and offices (we will reimburse you for your mileage)
  • Office volunteers to help us respond to calls and emails
  • Counting team members to help us count and bank the money we collect
  • Poppy Centre volunteers to give out tins and poppies to our collectors (London only)

You only need a couple of hours a week to help us, and your time would be invaluable in making sure the Poppy Appeal runs smoothly and successfullyin your area.

Please help us by getting in touch before the end of September. If you want to volunteer in London, there is no time restriction, but the sooner you get in touch the better!
