During 2020, for the first time in the history of the Poppy Appeal, our volunteers were unable to carry out face to face collections in England and Wales.

Never in the charity’s history, even during the Second World War, have all face-to-face collections been cancelled, and the impact of this was a shortfall of over £20 million. This year, as we celebrate 100 years of the Poppy Appeal, we are delighted that our volunteers will be back in action.

However, we still need your help. As we mark 100 years of bringing together communities to create better futures for our Armed Forces and their families, every poppy counts.

We are asking our kind supporters to help us distribute poppies to friends and family, and to collect donations in aid of the Poppy Appeal. If you would like to help, we will send you a pack containing 20 poppies for you to give to your friends and family, collecting donations in aid of our vital work.

How to get involved

If you want to get involved, please request your poppies free of charge by completing our online form. You can then distribute them to your friends and family in exchange for a donation to support our Armed Forces community.

Along with the poppies, you will receive an information pack including guidance on how to distribute the poppies safely and send in your donations.

Please note, the pack will not include pins. Unfortunately in order to maintain the safety of postal carriers and our supporters we are unable to provide affixing pins with these poppies. This is due to the potential danger pins would cause if posted.

Donate to the Poppy Appeal

If you are unable to support this initiative, please consider making an online donation to the Poppy Appeal.
