London Poppy Day 291020_337

As Covid restrictions ease, our volunteers are back out in their communities to raise vital funds for our Poppy Appeal.

Our volunteers have been at the heart of the Poppy Appeal for over 100 years, helping us raise millions of pounds. We really couldn't do it without them. 

Get involved in this year's Poppy Appeal, from organising fundraising campaigns in your local area to distributing poppies, because every poppy counts.

Our Poppy Appeal Volunteers are the face of RBL during the Poppy Appeal and help collect donations whilst distributing thousands of poppies across the country.
