Three Participants Poppy Walk London 2023
  • Walking, Remembrance

  • Southampton Common

  • £10, under 18s free

Come together during the Poppy Appeal for a short, family friendly walk to lay a poppy tribute and mark Remembrance.

This November we invite you to personalise and plant your own poppy tribute in honour of someone you may have loved and lost, and in recognition of what others have given and sacrificed for us all.

Bring friends and family together to celebrate the lives of Service men and women and help raise much-needed funds, as we share a moment of personal reflection on a sociable walk.
