Bud Heritage Volunteer

Bud is Poppyscotland’s brand new vehicle for exploration and learning, a truck that transforms into a mobile community space, comprising a mini poppy factory, micro-museum and with interactive learning opportunities.

Bud is an interactive experience that encourages visitors to create their personal remembrance journey through exploring the exhibits. It is helping us keep remembrance relevant all year round.

Organisation aims and objectives

Poppyscotland are here to provide vital funds, advice and support to the Armed Forces community throughout Scotland. Donations enable us to deliver a valuable outreach programme and learning resources to teach the importance of Remembrance, veterans, and the significance of the poppy to schools and community groups. Last financial year, there was a total welfare spend of £2.8 million, where we supported those into employment, gave advice and vital funding. For more information on the individual facts,we can send along one of our annual reports. We support everyone in Scotland, and therefore have services across Scotland. The closest will be our Armed Services Advice Project, which last year supported 2,550 individual members of the Armed Forces community. We also provided 30 individual grants to those living in the Borders
