The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every year in November, the period of Remembrance.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are continually reviewing our plans for this year's Poppy Appeal. To ensure better clarity on the situation in November, the Legion will communicate its plans in early autumn. 

Thank you for your continued patience while we navigate new ways of working in these unprecedented times.

Poppy Appeal 2019

Last year the Poppy Appeal went undercover, with the help of GCHQ in their centenary year, to highlight the unseen contributions of our Armed Forces.

Undercover celebrities teamed up with some of our 40,000 Poppy Appeal volunteers to help us shine a light on the invaluable contributions being made by the Armed Forces community.

The identities of our undercover celebrities were revealed throughout the day on 24 October via a series of coded clues from GCHQ.

Can you crack the GCHQ codes?

Is my poppy recyclable?

All of the parts of our poppies can be recycled. After Armistice Day you can recycle your poppy at any Sainsbury’s supermarket.

There are also a variety of enamel poppy pins that you can wear instead of a paper poppy and we have a range of alternatives available from our Poppy Shop. You can then choose to make a donation to the appeal every year.

We are committed to reducing the impact our poppies have on the environment and are working to remove all single use plastic in the future.
