Each year, in early November some 30,000 Legion volunteers take to the streets with poppies and collecting boxes, raising millions of pounds for the Poppy Appeal.
The money collected at this time and from numerous other fundraising activities throughout the year, goes to providing help and support to serving and ex-Service men and women and their dependants.
In the Appeal Year 2011/2012, the County of Devon raised over £1 Million and we have done it again in 2014/2015 and 2016/2017!
Poppy Appeal 2016/2017 as at 28th February 2017: £ 1 076 000.00
We always need new volunteers - Poppy People - to assist with Poppy Appeal collecting in Devon.
Without volunteer collectors out there on the streets, without appeal organisers planning the collections, this great cause - that helps thousands of ex-Service men and women every year - would grind to a halt.
And we urgently need to recruit more people as many of our current volunteers are retiring from active duty. Add to this the ever increasing demand on the Legion's services and you can see we need your help more than ever.
Please contact our Community Fundraiser if you are interested in helping.
