Poppy Appeal

Since it was first worn as an Act of Remembrance 100 years ago, the poppy has become an enduring symbol of support for our Armed Forces and hope for a peaceful future. 

For over 100 years, Remembrance has been part of the fabric of society, reminding us of our shared history, and today it continues to unite people across all backgrounds, communities and generations.

The poppy is a symbol of Remembrance and hope.

Your poppy supports the Armed Forces community, past and present.

Remembrance honours those who serve to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life. We unite across faiths, cultures and backgrounds to remember the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth.

We want people of all ages to understand the importance of remembering those from the British Armed Forces who have made sacrifices defending the freedoms we enjoy.
