The Poppy Appeal
Oxfordshire Poppy Appeal Facebook
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.
The National Poppy Appeal total ending 30th Sept 2019 was £46.25 Million
Each District Council area raised the following
|Oxfordshire less Vale of White Horse
|County Office/ CFR
|| £ 24518
|Cherwell District Council (EHA)
|Oxford City Council (EHB)
|South Oxfordshire District Council (EHC)
|West Oxfordshire District Council (EHE)
The Vale of White Horse is included in the Berkshire total
We always need new volunteers - Poppy People - to assist with Poppy Appeal collecting in Oxfordshire.
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 County Fundraiser if you are interested in helping.
