London Poppy Day 291020_337

As Covid restrictions ease, our volunteers are back out in their communities to raise vital funds for our Poppy Appeal.

Our volunteers have been at the heart of the Poppy Appeal for over 100 years, helping us raise millions of pounds. We really couldn't do it without them. 

Get involved in this year's Poppy Appeal, from organising fundraising campaigns in your local area to distributing poppies, because every poppy counts.

While applications to help at the Poppy Appeal 2021 are now closed, you may still apply to volunteer at a City Poppy day or express an interest in volunteering at the Poppy Appeal 2022. 

Poppy Appeal Volunteers

Poppy Appeal Volunteers are the face of RBL during the Poppy Appeal and help collect donations whilst distributing thousands of poppies across the country.

Applications to volunteer for the Poppy Appeal 2021 have now closed. You may register an interest to volunteer next year for Poppy Appeal 2022 and a local representative will be in touch in January 2022 to let you know how you can help.
