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

Undercover celebrities have accepted a mission to join forces with poppy collectors across the UK.

Teaming up with some of our 40,000 Poppy Appeal volunteers, they are helping us shine a light on their efforts and the invaluable contributions being made by the Armed Forces community.

The Legion can be a lifeline for the Armed Forces community

Who will you get yours from?

Every Poppy Appeal collector has a unique story to tell.

So please, look out for your local collector, make a donation and wear your poppy with pride.

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.
