Our volunteers are the lifeblood of Poppy Scotland. Their support collecting for the Scottish Poppy Appeal means we can make a life-changing difference to our Armed Forces community. But we need more volunteers. We need you.
You’ll be joining a team that covers every city, every town and every village in Scotland. A team that helps us pin over two million poppies onto Scotland’s coats, jackets and jumpers. Closer to November we would need Poppy Scotland collectors, by putting a Scottish Poppy Appeal tin in your hand, we can raise up to 50 times more.
However at the time being, we need volunteers as Scottish Poppy Appeal Area Organisers. These individuals take responsibility for coordinating the Appeal in their area, ensuring that poppies are available throughout the campaign.
Whether you have only a few hours, a few days or more, every penny you are able to raise will help fund our vital services. An extra hour could boost your collection by 6% and if this was replicated across the country that could see an extra £150,000 raised.
Make a huge difference to the lives of those in need in the Armed Forces community, and make a difference to your own life too.
