Scottish Poppy Appeal Organisers

  • VO97201


Poppyscotland are looking for individuals, business, or community groups to organise the annual Scottish Poppy Appeal in Aberdeen. The poppy is the national symbol of Remembrance worn proudly by those who wish to support the Armed Forces community of Scotland in the build up to Remembrance Sunday.

Your role will be to coordinate the Scottish Poppy Appeal, by organising deliveries to local schools, shops, and businesses, organising ‘staffed’ collections at busy locations such as supermarkets by building a network of collectors to support the Appeal and producing collection rotas and at the end of the Poppy Appeal ensuring all donations are collected in and paid into the banked so that they can fund Poppyscotland life changing Welfare programs for veterans, serving personnel and their families.

A fantastic opportunity to help PoppyScotland. All help makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.

For more information please contact Ian Jackson, Volunteer Development Officer at email: or tel.: 01315501597.

Organisation aims and objectives

Poppyscotland provides life-changing support to our Armed Forces community. We reach out to those who have served, those still serving, and their families at times of crisis and need by offering vital, practical advice, assistance and funding. We believe that those who serve or have served, whether regular or reserve, are deserving of our support to live life fully without disadvantage after service. No veteran should live without the prospect of employment, good health and a home, and we all have a part to play in achieving this. Poppyscotland is best known for running the iconic Scottish Poppy Appeal, but we work all year round to help those who have served, those still serving and their families receive the care and support they urgently need.
