Each year, in early November some 3,000 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 2014, Lincolnshire raised over £778,500 and hopes to improve this in 2015 (financial year calculated from Oct to Sep). As of 29th September 2016 we have raised £909,929.18p we are on target to reach our goal. The National Total is £ 44,823,847.92p
We always need new volunteers - Poppy People - to assist with Poppy Appeal collecting in Lincolnshire.
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 Poppy Appeal Coordinator if you are interested in helping.
