Our family of charities

Poppyscotland and The National Memorial Arboretum are part of The Royal British Legion family of charities.

Poppyscotland is the leading charity supporting serving and ex-serving personnel and their families in Scotland.

Established in 1921 as The Earl Haig Fund Scotland, the charity became Poppyscotland in 2006 to better reflect its fundraising and welfare work. In 2011 Poppyscotland merged with the Royal British Legion to form the largest charity group supporting the Armed Forces community across the UK.

They are best known for running the Scottish Poppy Appeal, but work all year round to help make sure serving and ex-serving personnel and their families receive the care and support they need.

Part of RBL, The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK's year-round centre of Remembrance.

Since planting began in 1997, the National Memorial Arboretum has been a special place honouring those who have served, and continue to serve, our nation in many different ways.

Covering 150 acres, the Arboretum has something for everyone. For some it’s a wonderful place to stroll and enjoy the trees; for others it's a peaceful and beautiful place to remember loved ones, particularly those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
