Host a summer celebration and raise a cheer for 100 years of the poppy.
Join us in our centenary celebrations and host your Great Poppy Party. This summer, more than ever, we all want to be together with friends and family, so invite them along to a party, cook, bake or BBQ and raise funds to support our Armed Forces today.
For 100 years, the Royal British Legion has provided much-needed welfare and comradeship to millions, and we’ll keep working to ensure that no one who has served is disadvantaged because of the sacrifices they have made.
