Poppy Appeal

Make a donation

Thank you for supporting this year's Poppy Appeal. Every poppy makes a difference to the lives of our Armed Forces community. 

This year's Poppy Appeal has officially ended. Thank you to everyone who has taken part, whether through donating, volunteering or doing your own fundraising challenge.  

This year, we marked 100 years of the Royal British Legion, and also celebrated the return of our amazing Poppy Appeal collectors in our local communities. Without them and without you, we wouldn’t be able to continue supporting serving and ex-serving men and women and their families. 

Details for Poppy Appeal 2022 will be available early next year. Thank you once again for your continued support.

Is my poppy recyclable?

The most effective way to recycle our poppy is to return it to your local Sainsbury’s store after  Remembrance Sunday

Alternatively, the paper and plastic components that make up our poppy can be pulled apart and recycled through some local authority household recycling methods.

You could also wear an enamel poppy pin instead of a paper poppy, and there are a range of alternatives available from our Poppy Shop. You can then choose to make a donation to the Poppy Appeal every year.

We are committed to reducing the amount of single use plastic associated with our Poppy Appeal products. We have already implemented changes that will remove over 8 million items of single use plastic from our 2021 products and will continue to look at ways to further reduce the environmental impact of our Poppy Appeal products.
