Frequently asked questions

Check out our FAQs to find out more about our Poppy Quests, or call our Supporter Care team on 0333 011 4500. 

What is Poppy Quest?

We’ve revamped our old Poppy Walks and given it a brand new shiny name. Welcome to Poppy Quest, where you’ll be using maps and mind to uncover city gems. Our Poppy Quest events will take the same format as the old Poppy Walks but we felt it needed a new name to stand out from the crowd. Hopefully you’ll like it just as much as we do.   

What time does the event start?

The Portsmouth Poppy Quest will begin at 9.30am.

The event village is open until 4.30pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the route before getting your well-deserved medal at the finish.

Will the route be different from last time?

One thing we like to do with our Poppy Quest events is to change things up a bit each year so you’ll never do the same walk twice. We’ll have a completely different set of questions to answer and the route will get you to explore even more of your town/cities hidden secrets.

Why isn't there a Poppy Quest near me?

We hope to increase the number of Poppy Quest events in future years but we have to be careful about how much we spend on new events to ensure that we raise enough money for our veterans, serving personnel and their families. We’re really sorry if there isn’t a Poppy Quest near you, in the future, we hope Poppy Quest events will spring up across the country.

How much do I have to raise?

Registration fees only help to cover the event costs – so fundraising is really important in helping serving and ex-serving personnel and their families. We’re asking each adult to raise £50 and get the kids involved to help them too.

How do I pick up my prize for reaching £100 in sponsorship?

This year, we have a special prize in store for participants that raise £100 or more in sponsorship. You can pick this up on the day by coming to the Collection Point and showing us your JustGiving page or your sponsorship form. Please note that if you are fundraising in a team you will only receive one prize per £100 raised.

How can I pay in my fundraising?

The easiest way to fundraise is by setting up a JustGiving Page. Simply visit The Royal British Legion's JustGiving page and click the 'Fundraise for us' button. You can also post a cheque or sponsorship form with your name and the event you’re fundraising for to: Mass Events Team, The Royal British Legion, 199 Borough High Street London SE1 1AA.

How long is the route?

The course is approximately 10km, but there are plenty of opportunities to stop off at cafes around the route.

Is the route accessible?

Yes, we always try and ensure our routes are easily accessible and that people of all abilities can take part. In some cases where stairs may be present then there will always be an alternative in place.
