A message from your local Poppy Appeal Team:
Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted how we can deliver the Poppy Appeal this year, our dedicated staff, volunteers, partners and suppliers have been working hard to ensure that the 2020 Poppy Appeal is going ahead and the nation can take part in Remembrance activity.
Each year 40,000 volunteers from all across the UK make the Poppy Appeal happen. However, many of our volunteers, or someone they live with, now fall into vulnerable categories, so it is simply not safe for them to take part this year. As a result, we will unfortunately not able to deliver boxes of poppies to every local business that has supported the Poppy Appeal in the past. However, we have developed a range of new and exciting fundraising and donation tools that the public can access via our website to enable companies and communities to support the appeal. These are available on the Legion website www.rbl.org.uk/poppyappeal
Poppies will also be available from 7,500 Sainsburys, Aldi, Morrison’s and Tesco stores, and volunteers will run collection stands in other supermarkets and sites where possible. Many of our national and regional partners will also offer poppies via static boxes.
This Poppy Appeal, we are presented with huge challenges due to the impact the Covid-19 has had across our society. The pandemic has left some in the Armed Forces community, as in many others, in dire need of urgent help and support. We are asking our partners, volunteers, fundraisers, members and staff to come together and get behind the Appeal in a way not asked of them before.
