The Poppy Appeal in Oxfordshire


The Poppy Appeal  

Oxfordshire Poppy Appeal Facebook  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 Poppy Appeal Year runs from October to September and is referenced by the year it commenced

Poppy People

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.
