The Poppy Appeal in Somerset
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.
We always need new volunteers - Poppy People - to assist with Poppy Appeal collecting in Somerset.
Without volunteer collectors out there on the streets and without appeal organisers planning the collections, this great cause would grind to a halt.
Volunteer to become one of our Poppy People and you can get involved in the Poppy Appeal in your local area.
Please contact our Community Fundraiser Adam Brown if you are interested in helping.
